6:35 AM 3/5/2008

Good morning! I have had a bit of a late start this morning. I guess all of the traveling has finally caught up with me. By now you can probably tell that Sydney is not having the biopsy procedure today. As it turns out, yesterday, I drove to 4 hours to Houston, made the check presentation and then drove back home - all before about 3:00 PM in the afternoon. My trip to Houston actually went very well. There I was met by several others who had worked so hard to raise money for this new clinical trial. Some of the money came from the golf tournament that we had in Las Vegas but the majority came from the Lunch for Life campaigns of two families. In total, the Scaznys, Weberlings, and the Edgingtons helped raise $66,000.00 for this trial. The new induction trial aims at increasing the efficacy while reducing the toxicity of upfront therapy.

Sydney's procedure has been rescheduled for next Monday. This will be much easier on our family. This Sunday afternoon we will head down to Houston. On Monday morning we will meet with the interventional radiologist at 9:00 AM and then the procedure should follow shortly thereafter. We should be back on the road and on our way home by about noon. We probably won't know anything until late Thursday afternoon.

In the meantime their is plenty of normalcy going on. Well, I had better run. I am late and I am way behind.

A busy day of purpose lies ahead.
