Surgeon out of town

Well, crap. On Friday, we heard from Dr. Albritton (young adult oncologist at Dana Farber in Boston) and she said Dr. Rahbar (Nick's surgeon at Children's Hospital Boston) is out of town until Sept 3rd. She may still meet with his fill-in and her radiologist; she'll discuss with Dr. Chen this week. In all probability, we won't hear anything until after the 3rd. She also suggested we try to see Dr. Sharma (Nick's ENT here in SLC) so he could just peek up in his sinuses and see what's going on, but Dr. Sharma is booked solid until Sept 3rd. Fine.

In the meantime, Nick was my co-host for Kelsey's end-of-season softball party, with over 40 people attending. It was a huge success, especially when they viewed the video Nick helped edit highlighting their season with pictures and music. Nick later said he caught himself grinning ear to ear as he watched the girls cheer in pure delight embracing the memories.

We also have our first annual charity softball tournament confirmed for Sept 13th. As soon as I can figure out how to do it, I will post an information sheet and pledge form to help raise money for the 2 charities Nick has selected. We have a lot of work to do so that will help pass the time as we wait.

School starts tomorrow for Nick (freshman in college), Carly (senior in high school) and Kelsey (first year in junior high). Nick is a little under the weather with a cold but he is excited.

Have a great week, everyone!

Praying it is scaring from your previous treatment.

Lori thanks for your sense of humor... Nick thanks for your courage...

Dear Lori,
Your latest posting supports the saying - "live today and let tomorrow worry about itself". September 3rd will hold two men close to my heart. First, my husband Stan as we celebrate our 31st Anniversary and my nephew Nick, as I ask God to grant him grace and continued healing. Love, aunt Chris

I start school tomorrow too! (a new college as an older college junior...)

Keeping you in prayer...
