Didn't We Just Do This?

We're back to Duke today for a follow-up appointment. This one is the regular 2-month checkup, complete with MRI. He had the MRI yesterday and we've already heard from the local doctor that everything looks great so that's fantastic news!

It'll just be a standard trip to Duke:

Leave at 6:30...AM (ugh)
Drive 2 hours
Wait ? hours (this varies anywhere from 30 minutes to 4 hours)
Have lunch with Son #1 (the highlight of the trip)
Drive 2 hours home
Sleep for 2 hours to recover from the stress of the trip.

I'm sure he'll have to go back in June again, but after that, it should be every 3 months instead of every 2 months. That doesn't seem like much of a difference, but it cuts the trips down to 4 times a year instead of 6. YAY!!!

Sorry I didn't have time to get an iPod playlist together, I'll do better next week. Promise!

Be sure and stop by tomorrow for our first guest blogger appearance. She's a regular commenter here and her blog is guaranteed to make you say, "Awwww... That is so cool!"

Have a great day!
Peace and love,

Every three months instead of 2 is huge - not only in terms of driving! I'm so glad to hear that bit of positivity, Alannah :)

I'll be back tomorrow - I think I know who it is, but I'll reserve guessing in case I'm wrong.

the neuro-oncologist confirmed the local read - "The MRI looks great!"

Being "great" for a year has such a wonderful physchological effect.

I hope you're all having a great day!!
