Hi all,

We had a very enjoyable evening last night – dinner with Roger and Bonnie, Gary and Linda and then off to the Boney James Concert at the Murat.  Richard loves his music and he gave an excellent, spirited performance!  See pictures from my iphone (quality not great!) and you tube link to hear a sample of his music, if you’re interested.

Richard and I had a discussion with his oncologist by telephone yesterday and Richard is still considering the tradeoffs involved in doing a Phase 2 clinical trial that involves chemo.  If he chooses to participate in the clinical trial, he will probably have a procedure to put a stent in the liver to improve his blood flow through the liver (and hopefully, his platelet count) before starting chemo.  No matter what, he does not want to begin treatment until after the weekend of October 2nd when we have a trip scheduled.  Please pray that we are guided in our decision ….

    Dear Rich,

    Great to talk with you yesterday and catch up. I wanted to recommend a book since you mentioned you are enjoying reading so much. The title is “Undaunted Courage” written by Stephen Ambrose. Its about the Lewis and Clark Expedition and their quest across the North American continent. Ambrose is a powerful writer and a great historian – – lots of books on WW2 (he also played football and went to University of Wisconsin!). The book is riviting, you feel like you are a part of the expedition team and marvel at how they made it through such a challenging and dangerous journey. I think you can get a paperback version pretty cheaply on Amazon….

    Lets stay in touch and hope you have a great day. Best always, Tim

People here love to talk about the leafs !!! Richard do you follow hockey ? All 3 kids play so it keeps us busy. Dru hopes to play in the US next year, he plays junior A right now ….He needs to have a good year and hopefully he’ll get some offers. I was in Whistler last week for business I had never been, it was so beautiful and the weather couldn’t have been better.It was great seeing everyone at the reunion and the pictures are great it was an awesome spot ,especially Sat at Drury’s.It was great catching up with Chris,how are Meg and Michael ?
