I did talk to dad today and Paul and Colleen the day before that. Things seem to be the same as they have been. I'm glad someone stopped in to say hi. I think there have been fewer visitors lately and that's ok too. There's probably a happy balance between too few and too many visitors. When people come by I think he tries to take it up a notch so they don't think he's different. I saw that during our hectic visit over Christmas that this type of activity caused him to talk, walk, and think more than usual and by the end of the visit he was doing better. Tired, but better.
As long as things stay quiet I've talked to my mom and a couple of people about using the blog to post information about our trip to Europe that starts in like 3 weeks. If this bothers anyone in any way, let me know. I certainly don't want to take the focus away from the intent of the blog.
We leave for London on February 4th, spending a few days there before we move on to Alesund, Norway for 3 months. Strangely enough weather.com had shown the temperature there to be 41 degrees the other day. Somewhere around April 25th we will be moving on to Middelburg, Netherlands, or more accurately, somewhere near there. We will be in the Netherlands for 4 weeks, travelling to Madrid, Spain for a week, and after that to our final destination, Gothenburg, Sweden. We arrive home around the beginning of August. Just in time for the kids to start back to school.
Again...if tales of "the trip" are a distraction to anyone, please let me know. I won't be offended and it will help me decide how to proceed. firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for checking in. Chemo round #3 tomorrow. I'll let everyone know how it goes.
