I'm on a public computer at the Courtyard Marriott, but didn't want to leave you hanging. Erin finished the first five days of The Rhino with practically no problems (I can report one hour of diarrhea and discomfort on Thursday evening, brought to heel by Imodium, but so far that's it.). We get a two day break on the setting-the-alarm-to-give-meds routine and then do irinotecan alone next week (no temador). We'll see how the counts hold when we go to Houston on Tuesday.
Nothing wrong with my van that $1100 wouldn't fix, so I have new valve springs, a re-compressed valve, and thrown in for fun, new brakes. Hey if you want to go, you have to be able to stop.
The Mystic '97 have played at a high level this weekend, but have ended up with two ties. Given the evenness of the talent pool, we are still vying for a spot in the semi-finals. For Erin fans, you will be excited to know that we believe the chemo has helped. I actually saw Erin running the field, filling her lane, with her old stride and pace this morning. You can not imagine how that makes Walter and I feel.
