Hard to believe another two weeks have gone by since Michael returned to Mayo. Michael doesn't have to worry about buying reading material, he's got the Blog. It continues to get more and more entertaining! I love all the humor that is surfacing, because laughing has tremendous healing power. Michael continues to improve. He is now up walking on a regular basis and eating a more regular diet. The big wait is now for next week when he will undergo a repeat CT of the liver to see how the treated liver lesions are doing. The fistulas will be reassessed to see if they are getting smaller and hopefully going to heal on their own.
Winter continues to spread the word about prostate cancer. Today she ran a 1/2 mile race at Lake Placid, NY and sported her new Athletes for a Cure triathlon uniform in honor of the prostate cancer foundation. She took 1st in her age group and was only beat by one boy overall! The team uniform she is wearing (pictures coming soon) will be worn by Michael's brother-in-law, Chris Dandeneau, Michael's friend, Glen "Ollie" Oliver and myself at Sunday's Ironman Lake Placid event. We have dedicated this race to Michael and prostate cancer awareness. For more information go to the Herald Times article on the right side. For those who want to follow the race on Sunday go to the ironman website posted in the right column.
