Brinner… Day 1032 13SEP11

Joshua started off his day with school work. Unfortunately he finished his day yesterday with methotrexate so his brain was a bit fogy today. He did ok for a bit but struggled to stay focused as the day wore on. He usually only has one really bad day after the methotrexate so with luck he will be much improved tomorrow.

Tonight we all met up at a big hall for Brinner.

Breakfast + Dinner = Brinner.

It was a fund raising event for the Sunshine Research Project which is supported by the Pediatric Cancer Foundation. Their goal is to fund pediatric cancer research and find a cure for ALL and all other childhood killers. The food was delicious and it was fun to have breakfast for dinner, nothing like bacon and eggs along with french toast. Both the boys got up on stage with a lot of our other little friends during the presentation to present some very sobering statistics about childhood cancer. (Look how big Jarrod has gotten :)

We also got a chance to visit with a bunch of our cancer family and see several people who we have not seen in quite a while. It is always uplifting to see kids we have known who are now a year and a half out of treatment and doing great. It helps remind us that someday our lives will be like theirs and we can put cancer behind us instead of in front.

After dinner I had to head back to work and Renee took the kids home to put them to bed. It was a fun evening and we are glad that we can do a small part in supporting more dollars for research and a cure.

We need to eradicate childhood cancers from our planet! They are simply unacceptable.

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

Sorry to hear about the chemo fog. It's got to be exasperating. I'm hopeful by the time you get up this morning it will have cleared and you can easily focus on your work.

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior. You are my Champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
