13...

Neither lucky nor unlucky. Just done. 13 rounds down and hopefully only 3 to go. That's the great unknown, the one I don't even like to consider. Am I almost done? My focus is on getting to round 16 and getting a break. I know the odds say that this won't be the end of my journey, the end of this dance with cancer. But I just want a clean scan at the end of round 16 to buy me a 3- month chemo holiday. Just a few months to breathe. One clean scan with no surprises. Not too much to ask, I hope.

Oh, and no post is really complete without pictures, is it?

Hmmm, a three month break would also be enough time to recharge the disability account at work too . . .

You deserve 30 years much more than three months and everyone knows it and hopes for it and wants you to get it.

We love reading your blog and seeing your photos. No, it's not too much to ask at all -- you have come so, so far. We're one more family that's pulling for you.
