I am writing this blog as we drive back up to Earlville, IA. My family and I were just there last weekend and returned home on Monday morning so I have became pretty familiar with this highway in a short amount of time. During the ride I have been reading Shawn Johnson's book, so as we drove through Des Moines I found Chow's Gymnastics on the map and tried to get Kyle to take a detour to see the gym but he wasn't sold on the idea.
|Our pit area last weekend. The S11 and Batman had broken transmissions. Which we had to pull the transmission out of the truck and fix it twice. And we had to change motors in dad's car. All before we could leave Sunday night.|
Tomorrow we will be finishing the race from Topeka and then we will start the second race of the weekend on Friday. This will probably be the last division race we will attend this year unless I go rounds at both races then I may take the truck the Noble, OK.
Today I had my check up with Dr. Koeneke since next week is my last chemo week. He was happy with all my numbers once again, my hemoglobin was a little low but he wasn't concerned about it. We discussed the plan after next week and lets say I can't wait for the next week to be over with. For the first month I will continue with weekly labs. After the month I will meet with Dr. Koeneke again to discuss my labs and I will also get another CAT scan of my chest and abdomen to make sure everything looks good there.We may also do a MRI of my brain because small cell carcinoma will sometimes migrate up there, so they want to make sure those little guys haven't found somewhere else to live. If everything looks good then I will go in for labs and scans every 3 months for at least a year. After that we will move to every 6 months and then move to just once a year.
|Thank you to Mike Edwards for showing his support on his pro stock car.. It is an overwhelming feeling seeing these stickers on so many people's race cars.|
That is it for now, I will update everyone next week sometime during my LAST round!
