      Yesterday started out good and then just continued to get better from there.  First, in terms of traffic, the drive into New York City was the best I can ever remember.  Traffic was very light with no holdups anywhere even though I forgot to bring our EZ-Pass.  Second, my derm evaluation started early and went fine with no issues.  Next, I had my blood drawn at NYU and went on to see Dr.

                      Congrats Dick! I'm 4 weeks on Zelboraf as of today. I must admit i'm a bit scared still but i'm taking my pills like clock work. I already did the Ipi but it did not work as far as we know. Keep up what you are doing!
