Future Plans

I've received a number of questions about my graduate school plans. Many people have assumed that I would delay starting school under the current circumstances. This is not that case. I plan to begin school at the end of September just as I intended. I have discussed this with my oncologist. There is only a small amount of disease that we are fighting right now and Dr. W see no reason why we can't aim to be done with chemo prior to the start of classes. So I'm moving full speed ahead with my plans!

I have a couple of vacations planned before classes begin. At the end of the month, I will be in Las Vegas having a reunion with a bunch of my college friends. Then the first week in September, I'm going home to Omaha to visit my family which as of a few hours ago is one person larger! My niece, Isabelle Christine, was born at 12:37 pm today. Congratulations to my brother and his wife! I'll be in town to meet my new niece and to celebrate her sister's first birthday. I'm really looking forward to it.

    Hey Christine, is it possible to contact you directly? My mother was just diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer that has spread to her liver...

    I'd like to ask you a few questions, if that's ok.
