Trips to Eugene

July 1, 2010

This week has been filled with almost daily trips to Eugene. Mike was down on Monday for the oncology visit with Lee. I’ve been down the other days to help with lunch and offer side diversion for his time on the couch. Today my  nephew Jeff will be chauffeuring Lee to a noon appointment. Tonight, Kim will get a mini getaway to Yachats and I’ll be spending the night in Eugene. Saturday Tom will be over from Bend for a family party (celebrating fathers day, upcoming chemo, and not being in the hospital!). Hurray!

He did receive promising news from the oncologist. The pharmaceutical company has approved him for the medication. So he should start chemo next week at a  low cost.

On a positive note, Lee has started doing research on vanished towns of Lane county. He is thinking about compiling the information into some sort of book. I think it’s great he’s finding new project to work on while stuck on the couch.

I’m counting down the days to the Sitka workshop…. only 5 days left!

    Do you own the “merry-go-round” that you seem to be riding since early 2009??? Good news from CA. with new ‘baby girl Cook’s arrival’ then hearing about Lee’s oncology visit/eval. We’re thinking positive thoughts, facing East, keeping our fingers crossed, and praying. We know the good vibes will reach all of you. You can’t keep a good man down and Lee is one of the best men I’ve ever known. Keep the faith and know we’re cheering him on to recovery. Love, Marilyn, Ron, and Sparky our cancer survivor dog
