One more day to go...

Cody has done pretty good the past few days. He just has one more day of chemo in this session. So tomorrow he will get his chemo at 4:30 and then we will get out of here. I don't want to mention it to him because he will have a meltdown if it doesn't happen when he thinks it is suppose to. He is doing well except for his appetite. He didn't eat anything today until this evening. He ate his trusty old lobster tail. Actually that wasn't as easy as it usually is. It took a lot of child psychology and he almost out smarted me.. :D

I'll be getting up early to run again in the morning and try to stay on track. It's just too easy to get into the habit of saying "I'll do it tomorrow". One of the best things about training for a marathon is it keeps you honest in your training. One of my good running friends from Runners World has recently run the Huston Marathon and he dedicated it to his father who is battling cancer and also Cody. His name is Kirk and here is his picture. Kirk also was very kind and sent us his joggers stroller which we will be able to use in New York when we go up. That way I can put Cody in it and won't have to carry him. I'll also be able to run with him when the weather gets nicer. Thanks Kirk!!1

Monday Morning- I hope you all are home and settling in until the next step. Good for Kirk and the jogger because now Cody can "train" with you for your next race.

Hugs to all,

Dottie
