Tomorrow morning we head to a looooong day of chemo. I already went through the list of shark-slayers in my last post, so for now I am just reflecting upon all of the joy the last few days have brought to us all. Ann Thornton completed her half marathon in Gideon's name today! I was hootin' and hollerin' like crazy. She wants me to run in the Half Marathon with her in two years....hmmmm... This makes me laugh. However, nothing is impossible!
I want to just post some happy pictures tonight. I want to smile - that's all. Brooding about what is to come will not be helpful at all. Please smile with me as you look at Gideon on his NEW bike from Bill and Elizabeth Serrano, as you laugh at the pictures of Brody and Gideon beating that shark piñata to shreds (all while screaming "NO MORE SHARKS!" Ahhh...what a memory. And a stress reliever. I'll admit to getting in on the action) from Courtney Kerwin, and of Ann celebrating the end of her Half Marathon to benefit Leukemia/Lymphoma Society.
Please think of Gideon at 8 a.m. tomorrow morning as he goes under for his first chemo dose for this phase... We are praying for no adverse reactions.
(For some reason, these pictures uploaded backwards...starting at the end and going to the beginning. Please start at the bottom of the screen and move up. I would fix it, but computer code kind of intimidates me.)
