Not everyone knows this, but Sabine and I have the same date of birth -- April 5th. So, this week we celebrate her 60th and my 75th birthday. (Wow! 75 seems old!). To celebrate, we are going to visit our daughter, Sumi, granddaughter Taylor, and son-in-law Scott in West Orange, New Jersey, a short distance from Broadway! Son Michael will also be in the neighborhood (a biking partner me?). We are scheduled to see "Book of Mormon" and a modern dance program.
But the "big birthday bash" will be this summer over the 4th of July weekend at our farm where I will attempt to cap my 75th year with a 75 mile cycling event. Some friends have already signed on! Others wisely did not!
Sabine has been off chemo now for a couple of months. When we return we will, take a blood test to check on the cancer growth, see Dr Sheehan, and plot an attack on those nasty blood light chains that has been slowly growing but were not quite at the intervention (chemotherapy) stage two months ago when we last checked.
By the time we get back we will expect Spring to have settled into Wisconsin.
Have dialysis machine, will travel!
