Welcome to 2012!

Good morning!

It’s been a while since I’ve written.  I’ve been busy.  Yeah..taking the kids to school, listening to music, hanging out, and generally goofing off.  But then when the kids get home at 3pm…it make up for it with the chaos…so it’s even.

About my heath.  I’ve been on Avastin for about 6 months and its proving to be a good thing.  The only thing is it there’s nothing else that is “next” for me.  Its Avastin…or whatever they might come up with next.  Yes…I’ve embraced the reality.  But “get busy living or get busy dying”.

My scooter arrives tomorrow.  It’s a “pre-mobility” scooter so it’s sporty…as much as a mobility scooter can be.  It’s not that I can’t walk…I do ok with a cool cane for longer walks.  But this will get me out and around town.

Oh yeah.  I got a tattoo.  It says “JEDI” and has the symbol for my Jedi organization.  My next one will be The Beatles famous picture of Abbey Road.

The wife and kids are doing great (other than the fact that dad has a terminal brain tumor).  We’ve talked about it a lot.  We enrolled in the TLC center for grieving children here in Portland.  This is a great organization that helps families go through something like this…even though my aren’t currently grieving.  Hopefully be a long time…but you know.

It snowing out for the first notable time this season.  Of course it’s going to rain later so the 3 inches that we have right now will disappear and be a big mud puddle.

I have a HARD time typing.  This damn keyboard doesn’t read minds!  It took me 3 hours to write this!!  (just kidding).  But It takes me a lot longer than it would have 2 years ago.

I’d like to thank my folks for everything they’ve done and everything they do. It’s too much to detail so I won’t.  I love you Mom & Dad.

So we just keep on truckin’ and look forward to spring.  Stay tuned.
