March 4, 2014
Gary is with Casey and they were able to get to tour NASA and go to the dog races. They were hoping to be able to golf, but they were not able to remove Casey's port. They have not been able to get Casey's liver function to a comfortable level with pills instead of the intravenous medicine. All of Casey's buddies have now gone home, so he is stuck with mom and dad. I really appreciate all of you taking time out of your busy schedules to spend time with him. There are so many people who have supported us throughout this ordeal. I don't know how we could have done it without all of you. A huge thank you to my parents who have paid the rent on the apartment and have been very gracious with allowing me to take time off of work. A lifetime of gratitude to Charlie, Melissa and Connor for giving Casey, not only a place to stay, but a home. Middle Atlantic swimming for donating their airline miles. Cherita has had an arduous year, but it has been a pleasure catching up with her. Thank you to my sister, Debbie for being the world's best aunt and keeping on top of all of the medical end of things. Thanks to LAC, Kyle, Derek and Tyler for putting together fund raisers and thanks to everyone who participated in them. I don't know how we would have made it through this past year without your support. Cancer is expensive. Most of all thank you to Stevie for donating her bone marrow without ever a second thought. I leave for Houston tomorrow to get Casey ready for the drive home. I know the thing he is looking forward to most is seeing his dog, but she really has not had it too bad at our house. She might not want to go home.
