I'm just getting ready to head off. I'll be bringing the Mrs. home this morning since the last of the pathology came back negative for cancer last night. Dr. Abu-Rustum says she's proceeding ahead of schedule in her recovery too. Yay!!!

I'd just like to thank the folks at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center for their competence, professionalism, caring, and thoughtfulness. A very impressive team who took great care of my wife and didn't have a problem with me showing up in the wee hours of the morning, 2 hours before the normal visiting hours, and hanging around for half the day. Special thanks to Ofor (yes, that's his name), the Army medic (Reservist) who just came back from Iraq and is pursuing his nursing degree while he works at Sloan as an aide. He doted on my wife, making sure she was comfortable and wanted for nothing. Thanks, man. I'm eternally in your debt, brother.

Several folks have asked where to send flowers. I'd rather, in lieu of sending anything to us, you make a donation to Sloan-Kettering for what the flowers or gift would cost. Flowers die but your gift to them can help folks who really need it.

Once again I'd like to thank all of you who've left good words and wishes in comments or who've emailed me directly. The generosity of concern has been overwhelming. Thank you on behalf or the Mrs. and Shayna.

Now we work on getting back to normal.
