Seattle Symposium and Los Angeles

      First our thoughts and prayers are with all of you during these difficult times for many on here. It has been challenging emotionally for me with all that has been going that I have not posted much recently. Although we have been extremely fortunate to be able take a few steps back from that horrible edge that we were very near, my inner voice (as much as I try to ignore it and push it down) asks daily, is today the day that the other shoe is going to drop and we return to that cliff edge? We do still have ongoing issues but are coping. I remind myself one day at a time. Live life. Make fond memories. 

      We will again be attending the symposium in Seattle on Saturday, although only in the AM as Adriana crosses more bucket list items off (and creating others,) getting to see her son graduate from HS in the afternoon. BTW she has just past 5yrs since first diagnosis, 3 years stage IV. Please introduce yourselves to us if you are there. We look kind of like this although Adriana has no hair now.

      Also we will be in Los Angeles June 13-20 for a vacation/grad present/honeymoon get away, staying near Disney but traveling all about seeing the sights (any suggestions). Coffee anyone maybe? Jen-Snow White? Send a email [email protected].

      Best wishes strength and peace to all on here.
