Stevie is in Houston to start her process. She and Casey have a busy week full of tests and appointments. Stevie's first stop in Texas was to buy a pair of cowboy boots. Poor Charlie tried to move 1500 miles away, but she found him. Casey's main objective was to get in a round of golf while he had his port removed. He and Charlie went out yesterday morning.They will put a new port in for the transplant tomorrow. This one will be in his chest instead of his arm. Stevie will coming home for a swim meet on Thursday and then back out there on Wednesday, November 20th.
Gary and I went to Baltimore on Saturday and had dinner with Stevie and Erik at a French Bistro owned by one of their swimmer's parents. It was a fabulous evening. The place is called Crepe Du Jour. If you are ever in the Mt. Washington area of Baltimore, you should check it out. We also had a birthday party for Stevie's dog, Kona and Casey's dog, Caroline. They were 2 years old on November 6th.
Gary is going to Houston on Saturday, November 23rd through December 3rd and Stevie will be coming home on November 25th. Gary will be with Casey on Thanksgiving. Casey will have full body radiation and some intense chemo. I am not sure if he will be able to eat any turkey this year, but I am sure he will try. Thanksgiving dinner is his favorite meal. We can always have Christmas and Thanksgiving in March. We will worry about that later, just taking this one step at a time.
