Thank you for visiting my blog. I wanted to create it so that all the people close to me can check in to see what happening in my treatment, and how I'm doing. This doesn't mean that I don't want to hear from you. Please feel free to call, email, text any time. But I apologize if I don't always get back to you. This new cancer journey of mine is a full time job, and I'm doing the best that I can. Please know that your thoughts and prayers mean so much to me...keep them coming! Thank you for all your help and support too...it takes a community, and you have all given us that.
With love and gratitude,

Arrival in Germany
Ruzana and I are here in Germany, at Klinik St. Georg, in the town Bad Aibling, south of Munich. I am so happy having Ruzana with me. It was hard to say goodbye to Mark and the kids, but I was fine once I got on the plane and could relax. The clinic is in an old Monastery that operates like a hospital. The doctors and nurses walk into our room as they would in a hospital...we've learned to lock the door! On our first day here, we got settled, had a nap, and I saw a doctor. I was also happy to meet a fellow Torontonian at dinner. It's very comforting to know he's here too. We had a decent nights sleep, and I went for bloodwork, an ultrasound, and my morning vitamin C infusion. My daily infusion takes place in the comfort of my own room, and takes a few hours. So this is my time to email and update my blog. This afternoon I am supposed to meet the head doctor, to go over my treatment plan. But we're hoping to get out to see the town at some point. All this sitting around could get boring. But for now, we're happy with it...I think it's time for another nap!
