A friend of mine asked what was going on because he didn't see any new posts on this blogsite. Well, as I've said before, "No news is good news!" I find that blogging is how I process my anxieties and other feelings. So, when things are going smoothly in the "cancer fight," I tend not to blog.

So far, this summer has seen the cancer under control -- a maintenance. And so I try to make our life as "normal" as possible (that is, if you can call home hemodialysis 5 days a week "normal.) Nevertheless, we are enjoying life, and remembering to be grateful in this time of grace.

This summer we had another family get-to-gether (last summer it was houseboating the Mississippi). It was on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We rented a big oceanside house for a week, went kayaking (see above), walked the beach, went cycling, pursued the wild horses, and checked out the Wright Brothers National Monument at Kitty Hawk.

We are now on our fourth cycle of the "chemo cocktail" (Velcade, Revlimid and dexamethasone) which means two weeks "on" and one week "off."

Sabine's "numbers" a in control for now.

Life remains good and we are grateful!

Thanks be to God!
