I've had a good week to weekend so far. So I set up a CT scan for the 4th and that will determine the amount of remission I'm in. Also since I got the new bone IV in my chemo pack i get to get my teeth all updated they need to be in good health for the side effects of the bone meds. Because of the OD from this last IV I've had to take twice as many injections to pick it back up. I had to miss my friends wedding this weekend and a small benefit beacause of the OD its kept my blood cells way to low. Sorry Ell and Sara I'm sure no matter what its going to be a good day. Sorry to all the people I can't get up to see at the tehachapea benefit, I wish i could sorry. I love you all, Sky

So when I went in and got my chemo they changed my etoposide from pill form to a new iv and when they did they did the math wrong and gave me a three day session. After the second session the next morning the doctor called me and told me they messed up one the dosage and have already gave me 30 percent to much, good thing I didn't get the third session. They also started a bone strengthner and the pains were everywhere in my all my bones but it only lasted two days. I felt good today and gabe and amanda came down for the weekend and they cooked the best meal since thanksgiving. Our local boy out of Napa brought home the bronze medal from beijing in BMX good job donnie robinson. Also I got to go golfing and Aaron had a great game and killed me. But we had a great time and I'm feeling good. I just had to be careful not to get sick because of the over dose. It seems I should be in the clear and my blood cells I think are up. So love everyone, Sky

round three

I got done with round three yesterday and they ran out of my ten day pill regiment I was taking so we substituted it with more iv so i go in for three extra days for that but its fast and not to hard. This last round went well ant round three I hope will do the same. I fell excellent today and am going golfing right now. My sons mom came home so were working on being a family again which feels real good I'm happy to have the memories of all of us together. I've lost about 7 inches around my belly and my doctor feels really good about it so that makes me happy. She had mentioned that there was a chance for a full recovery which was not mentioned before so again I'm very happy. I think were going to bet this and when its gone were having the biggest party ever for like a month or something. Ok well I'm off to golf love everyone and I'll talk to you soon, love sky.

good ol friday

well I had my Colonoscopy today last night was a very bad long night. But I got it over with they said they would sedate me but the maximum sedation didn't feel like anything scents i have been on pain relievers, so it was rough. Now I feel good and ready to have a great weekend, there catching tuna real close to long beach so me and Trevor might go fishing sunday. Oh and the result for the colonoscopy was negative so thats good except we still don't have an origin yet. Well my plan is to have a great weekend and get ready for round 3. I feel very positive that the cancer is shrinking, and I'm going to bet this. Its going to be a long road but I'm ready. I love you all, Sky

hump day

Yesterday I went to my lung doc and he seemed pretty optimistic, he had said that they had a big meeting about me and the head oncologist "my doctor" has never seen anything like this and was asking all other input from all other cancer doctors. But he also said that he thinks chemo is working and my lung has a chance to be cancer free. I was happy to hear some positive words from him, Even though its a long way away from happing at least he had hope also. He reschedule me for another meeting in 4 months, I said lets make it 16 month. So it looks like less fluid then what was left from the last procedure which leds to believe chemo is killing the cancer and reducing the liquid.
But on the other note I'm fifty fifty about my cancer maybe my cancer will die easily with the chemo because they don't know any thing about it, I just kinda want a doctor that seen my kind of case and knows how to cure me, But I really like my oncoligest she so nice and optimistic but I need someone that ready for this and knows what to do.
As far as today I feel good and I think i
I'm going to rematch Aaron at golf. I love everyone,Sky

I'm going to be short I got very sick last night and I'm very weak. I think that the chemo when it all hits me causes my intestines to swell and evacuate everything in me, then it wont alow me to eat or hold anything down. Last time it was a week so I'm hoping it wont be as bad this week. I love you all, Sky

Saturday August 2nd

My pain has grown in my stomach but it's nothing I can't handle. I had a good day. I went to the MMA expo where I met a lot of good fighters. We got Pat Militech, Jens Pulver, BJ Penn, Nathan Diaz and more to support our cause which I'm really excited about. I got to play golf with Ray, Steve and Keaton. We played a good game, it was a beautiful day. Now we are all enjoying a game of Apples to Apples.

I have high hopes that I will be able to make it through this chemo just fine.

Thank you everyone for all of your love support.
