Dr. Barlogie's Executive Assistant, Bonnie, and I have been emailing and she said that she would love to take me to dinner over the weekend if we could. She's a mother of four boys and I think she and I have a lot we can talk about. She is also trying to set Tanner up to meet a young man that she knows and thinks could be beneficial for him to meet and talk with while we are there.
Tanner is a very lucky young man to have so many people care about him.
He was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma at the tender age of 17... was originally given only a two year life expectancy by the first Oncologist that we saw... and here we are nearly two years later.
Thursday is his 19th birthday - and he seems to be in full remission with the expectation of a lot of years in front of him.
I am so thankful for the medical team that has worked with us - both in Little Rock and here in Fort Worth. You couldn't ask for a more caring group of medical professionals. They have ALL gone above and beyond for Tanner and I both the last couple of years.
We found out our friends, Tom and Shirley, are also in Little Rock this weekend!! We can't wait to see them and hear what Dr. Barlogie has to say about Tanner and Shirley on Monday!
We also get to see Aunt Tincey, Julie and the kids!!
We miss our Arkansas family and friends...
