|Hope I won't need to call him too soon|
I am doing well. Lately mostly I have just been tired. I think I have brought tired to a whole new level for me. The other night I was getting ready for bed, brushing my teeth, flossing and all that. I was really tired so I laid down on the bed to finish flossing. The next thing I knew I woke up with floss dangling from my mouth. I had fallen asleep while flossing. I think that may have been a first.

I think we can see the "light at the end of the tunnel". This coming Wednesday I will begin my last round of chemotherapy. I don't look forward to being sick again but at least this is the last journey down this dark road. Thank Heavens! In three weeks we will have another MRI taken and hopefully the tumor will show additional reduction in size. They are going to give me a little time to recover from the chemo then off to surgery. Right now I am scheduled for a surgery consult on December 10th and surgery either December 11th or 13th. Unless something changes it will be a same day surgery. It will be done at Mayo as a laproscopic surgery. One tumor will come out through my nose and the second one through my mouth. A few days after surgery JoLynne and I are going to meet our children in Florida and go on a Disney cruise. We have never been a on a cruise before. This will be the first. All of our children are in the area and we decided to "splurge". It will be good to be together, making happy memories. In mid January JoLynne and I will move to Minnesota for 7 weeks while I undergo radiation therapy. Nothing like Minnesota in February. JoLynne asked what we are going to do during all day when I am not receiving radiation treatment. I told her "We'll just chill out".
