10 second update....

Per usual...

too many things to do and not enough time to blog.

Kyle went back to chemo on Monday and his blood
work was really good.

Good enough to do BOTH the Gem. and the Cis.

So he sailed through like a champ and turned 
greenish grayish yellowish and had a million visitors to 
keep him company.

They loaded him with extra steroids and Benedyl
and at one point he broke out in a small rash on 
his face and ears (which contrasted nicely
with grayish greenish yellowish hue and so it
alerted the nurses to it quickly.)

The doctor was called and they made him stay for 
an extra half hour to make sure he was not going
to get any worse.

We are at Thursday and so far, good.


On a fluke chance Kyle's mom found out about the
first ever Cholangiocarcinoma gathering here in 
SLC, Utah up at the U of U campus.

Big wigs, little wigs, doctors, moderators from
the board and a whole bunch of people
gathering to talk about this cancer.

He hung out long enough for someone to notice him
and as it turns out he will get to sit on the back
row of this fabulous gathering tomorrow and listen
to what's happening in the world of CC.

I told him to take notes.


Life is busy, I can hardly catch my breath 
between work and school.

Kyle is pretty wiped out from chemo during his
"on" weeks and we're looking forward to one
more round Monday and then an "off" week.


We're grateful to friends that have kept us fed.

We're grateful for people being willing to
grow and stretch and learn with us along this


And by george that's what I've got for today.

(It was longer than 10 seconds and I'm off
to class in the rain!)
