A long day...

Today was one of those days. Cody and I showed up at the clinic around 11:30 am. We had to check in and he needed to give a little blood for labs. He was suppose to check in this morning so they could order the chemo to be mixed. Well as of 5:30 pm they still didn't have a room for Cody and he had not started chemo or radiation. I know that things just happen this way sometimes but it makes me feel like screaming. Now we are not even sure if he will start his radiation this week. All this just lets the spots continue to grow........ Hopefully tomorrow goes better!

On the fund raising front, I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that a friend of mine was going to let me shave his head if I could raise $5000 by this Wednesday. Well, he best be finding a good razor because I reached that total today. With some great donations from some friends we did it. I was also issued a challenge from a work associate that if I shave one of my legs he would donate $100 dollars. I'm going to go one leg better. I will shave both of my legs and post the pictures on the Runners World Forum if I get a $1000 donation. I know what you are thinking, "has he no shame?" Well, when it comes to raising money, no.....

Please don't stop donating. BOP and Relay for Life are in need of funds that can help find a cure for cancer...

Sorry for the rough day apester. You have done very well in your fundraising. I wish I had more to give. You probably should put that challenge on the forum. TC may come up with a few $. You know how she is about shaved legs...
