Joseph had his first neuro-oncologist appointment on Thursday to draw blood (which we have to do each month as part of our clinical trial) and do a checkup. They had to access his port, which he was upset about, but the whole process only took about 30 seconds due to two wonderful, efficient nurses (one was helping me keep him still). Dr. Janss said he looked great and he actually smiled for her and let her check him out without a fuss. So, they will send the results to St. Jude. I don't know exactly what they measure but we usually get a long page of different things and they let us know if something is low or high.
We have started packing up the house and plan to load it up Saturday morning to be in Nashville on Saturday. Thank you, Steve, for letting us use the moving truck! So, any strong and buff men or women who like to move heavy things, come on over and we'll let you test your strength on our furniture.
We are really going to miss our dear friends in Atlanta. After 7 years here we have made some wonderful friends and memories. But we are also hopeful that this move will be a great thing for our family and that the children will thrive in their new environment (nothing can compare to Mimi and Nana's house!) In fact, when the Make-A-Wish people asked where he would like to go, he said either Mimi or Nana's house (I cannot remember which, although both are like Disney World to him).
It will probably take several days to get our Internet in working order, but we will post again once everything is set up. Please pray for our move, that we will all get up there safely and that the kids make a good transition to their new home (and that something in the TN air will make Joseph sleep soundly at night :)).
