16 February 2010


From Fail to Pass, just inside the parameter, Ford's INR today was a 2.0.

Slowly, slowly he is making his way back up to where his levels need to be. For that we are grateful.

The next check will be in 2 weeks.

Ford has also taken on a new challenge. For at least two days of the week during his workout time, he is running. He has set some pretty challenging physical goals for the next several months. He has a proven ability to discipline himself to attain whatever he sets out to do.
It will be exciting to see him achieve his goals.

Tomorrow, 17 February, will mark the one year anniversary of his first chemo treatment. Subsequently, the 18th marks the anniversary of one of the most frightening days of my life, the day his sodium dropped dramatically and he had a seizure. He has no memory of that day or the events of the four days that followed while he was in ICU. That is probably a good thing.

We are both grateful that those days are over and that he is doing remarkable well.


  1. Congratulations on getting through a very rough year!

  2. Congratulations. May this year be a little lighter.
