Chicago Bound

We have an appointment for Monday the 13th. We fly in Sunday night.

Our overnight stay went well. Gary tolerated his chemo drugs ok so far. We still have one more to go this morning which I am glad I blog because it reminds me once again, hang out for a few minutes or bring a bucket in the car. Last methotrexate they put a anti nausea in his iv. I will remind them of this! I did not talk to the doctors about us going to Chicago. I will. I will. Stop nagging. I think Chicago (Dr. P) will agree with his treatment. I don't think it wise to transfer his care to Chicago but have Dr. Pachman as a consulting physician. I hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July. Gary should, it is a night time activity :).

Now I am researching where to stay. Think I will go for the Hilton or the Marriott. NOT A Super 8 will do.


  1. I am so excited for you. I know the mixed emotions you have right now. But, it is worth it and things will be better! They called from Chicago yesterday and we have 2 more IV infusions and they are going to stop them for a while and see how she does. We are praying for you guys! I hope Gary does well with his treatment today! We have methotrexate tonight also. I am dreading it! Hang in there Mama Tiger! We are praying for you!

  2. Glad to hear things went well yesterday. I hope and pray that the next week will see continued improvement and that Gary will have a great flight. If you want some good comic relief on kids on airplanes, watch Bill Cosby Himself and the section about "jeffrey". Enjoy the fireworks and festivities today, and I will continue to pray for Gary,and of course the rest of the fam. Lynn

  3. Thank you Lynn,
    You are so incredible. Your words lift my spirit and keep me wrapped in bravery. You remind me that I am love thru Him. He sends people like you to me to encourage and walk me through this time. I can't thank you enough for being a vessel of God. I pray that you and yours have a wonderful holiday. I will keep you and everyone updated. Thanks again.
