I am proud of Rebecca and Jason for their faith and perseverance. We so love our children and want them to be happy. But there will always be days that are sad.
I continue to do extremely well with my health. No changes of note. I still get Velcade weekly along with my Decadron. There are, however, some promising new drugs on the horizon that may change the course of my disease. I will keep you updated. Work is going well and I will be working with Kaiser to develop a video for patients newly diagnosed with prostate cancer. I wrote the script and will be in front of the camera. I'm trying to lose 10 lbs so that I look better on computer screens around Northern California.
Barbie has been working consistently in temporary positions as an RDH and is considering some more permanent options. She is a great hygienist.
We recently returned from a very romantic cruise to the eastern Caribbean. We visited Turks and Caicos, San Juan, Puerto Rico, St Thomas and a private island that Holland America owns called Half Moon Cay. We had such a relaxing week with 7 days of no cell phones, no Internet and no schedule. The sea was a beautiful clear turquoise, the water was warm and the few fish that we saw enough to say we snorkeled.

With the book done and a grandchild on the way, my previous bucket list had officially expired. While watching the ocean from our stateroom balcony I penned a new one. It has some fun stuff like reading Dickens, learning French, doing a culinary experience in St Helena, CA and riding the Orient Express from Paris to Istanbul.
I hope to continue writing, both here on our blog and other places as well. Maybe if the prostate cancer video plays well, I might get a call from Kaiser Hollywood.
