A Tiring Day with Zoe?

Zoe at the Library

Uh, I Think the Run was a wee more tiring than Zoe!

Ok so today was not a work at Target day. It was a babysit Zoe day, which is a little more fun. Watching Zoe is a cake job. I really don’t think you can say that about most 2 1/2 year-olds! When I arrived at 9:30, Zoe had just gotten up. She was watching TV and eating her breakfast. So I look at some stuff on my Kindle for a little while. After finishing her breakfast, she grabbed my hand and said it was time to play doll house. All that really meant was I had to sit by the doll house while she played. She basically played with the doll house for the next hour until it was time to pick up my wife for lunch. We came over to our house. Zoe played nicely with a finger-stamping set. She also had some yogurt.

Willpower – Go Will – Let’s Fight Lung Cancer!

So last night was one of those nights when real life takes over from music listening and blogging. About six to eight weeks before my son Peter and Missy’s wedding, Missy’s brother Will was in the hospital and being treated for pneumonia when the doctors discovered spots on his lungs and he was diagnosed with Stage Four lung cancer. It appears to be mostly in in one lung and at that point it was unknown whether the spots on the other lung were cancerous. It was hoped that it was not and then the bad lung could be removed. When the other lung was biopsied it too was cancer. Will, a non-smoker, was a classmate of my son Andrew and is 28 married with a cute little boy. After some radiation treatments it appears that there is no more cancer in the one lung and the tumor in the other appears to be dead and has shrunk 30 percent! It’s hoped that it will keep shrinking to the point that an operation to remove it may be possible! Last night we attended a fund raiser for Will and Nicole at Prospectors in Mount Laurel. There were many baskets to be raffled off, a band and an outpouring of love for Will!! One of the things that Will an Nicole have learned during this ordeal is that there is not a lot of funding first for lung cancer and more specifically for this type of lung cancer. Here is an article about lung cancer Understanding Lung Cancer and here’s a Facebook page WTF(Where’s the Funding for Lung Cancer? which links back to this page.
