Riding the Wave
This photo was taken on 11/19/12. The chemotherapy nurse, Olga, is starting the meds. The red bag is Doxorubicin (referred to as "candy"). It can burn the skin so the nurses wear protective gear when administering...The clear bag is Ifos. The Ifos. runs four hours per day; and the Doxorubicin runs continuously for 72 hours.
Today Jon is pushing against his emotional/physical threshold. He came down with a stomach bug last night that ripped through our home earlier this week. This "bug" combined with the chemo effects has brought him low...
Sickness aside, he was overwhelmed with gratitude this morning for our neighbor, Melissa Burton; The Cycle Annex; and the fearless Ride for Jon participants...
Dear Fearless Riders,
I really don't have adequate words to say thank you for this ride on my behalf. It brought me to tears this morning as I thought of you all saddling up today and tomorrow at the cycle annex for "Ride For Jon." For those of you I know and I those I don't know, you inspire me. For now, you pull me up this steep climb, but I will be back in the pack soon. From my heart to yours, thank you.
With Much Hope and Love
