Live from the infusion room

We just learned that Steve's counts are good enough for chemotherapy this week. Woo hoo! His RN is giving pre-medications now, and Avastin and CPT-11 will follow.

Our adventure started at 7:10 a.m., when we left the house to take Cooper to the Bassen home. (They then took him to school on time with their boys.)

We continued south through the frozen fog (Katie called the air "soggy"), to take Katie to the Fink-DeGraffenreid home. Katie danced into their doorway, and I left with Zita's magical muffins -- pumpkin, cinnamon, pecans, raisins. They always make us happy.

We hit the road again and made it to the cancer center by 8:30 -- plenty of time for the 9 a.m. appointment.

We expect a smooth morning and should be home in time for Katie's return (via Grandma Betty's taxi) and for me to meet Cooper at school to walk him home.

Thanks for checking on Steve and for your many prayers!
