We had a visit from daughter, Yumi, this week. She flew home for a week of leave from her Army assignment -- Medical Corps, 10th Mountain Division at Fort Drum, NY.
Yumi was recently promoted to Captain and due to medical constraints we couldn't make the ceremony last month.
It looks like Yumi will be posted to Iraq or Afghanistan early next year. We hope to see her home for Christmas before she leaves but all that is dependent upon the needs of her battalion.
She got back on the plan to New York and a stopover at sister Sumi's place and Yumi's niece, Taylor. (We can't wait to see the little outfit Yumi got Taylor while shopping on State Street!) [pictures, no doubt to follow].
This past week was one filled with numerous medical appointments, surgery, and tests -- but Sabine did get the go-ahead for a trip to Glacier Park at the end of this month!).
On our return, Sabine will meet with Dr Longo who will look at her most recent blood tests and then do a bone marrow biopsy that will give us the first information as to how new blood cells are dealing with the cancerous ones! Stayed tuned and we soon hope to give you reports from Glacier Park.
