I haven't seen Adrian and John since just after Christmas. Are they away on a trip or does anyone know where they are? Hope John is okay!

    Ditto
    I've been thinking of both of them too and hoping all is going well for them both. Hope John is healing well and getting up and back to normal. Hope you both check in soon.

    I was just thinking of them
    I was just thinking of them also and wondering where they were. I got a very handsome Christmas card from the two of them. I hope everything is ok. If you read this guys, we miss you! Patti

    Thanks Diane,
    I have been checking for them as well. I hope all is well with the two of you. We're thinking about you.

    Aloha,

    We're here!
    Hi guys,
    Thanks for the messages - I can't tell you how good it makes me feel. We were traveling from 12/26 - 1/4 (visiting each of our families) and have had a bunch of doctor appointments since we got back. John's pain has been getting much worse and it could either be good news (the dying tumor could be releasing toxins that irritate new tissue) or it could be that the tumor is growing again. He's going to start a third round of chemo next week - Irinotecan (which was really hard on him last time, but this time they'll use a much smaller dose and a pump) and 5FU. They'll monitor his CEA closely and if it doesn't go down, we'll stop the chemo.

    Sorry to have dropped off so abruptly - it's just been so busy lately trying to stay on top of my work and going to so many appointments at Stanford, that neither of us has been on here much.

    We're in good spirits though and loving life!

    lots of love,
    Adrian

    Good to hear from you
    I was wondering about you two. Glad you posted but so sorry John is not feeling well. Now I know you two are really busy but once in a while just write a short note. I'm not going to get mad at you for not checking in but just don't do it again, we care about you two way to much to wonder if something is really wrong. Take care - Tina

    John and Adrian
    Hi John,
    So glad to hear you and Adrian had a good time with family. I too pray that the pain is caused from the tumor dieing. It's great to hear that you are loving life!

    Take care and please let Adrian know we have been thinking about the two of you.

    Aloha,
    Kathleen
