Sloan visit

Hit Sloan Kettering again on Wednesday for a quick appointment with my neurologist, everything is cool for now, he said my hair should grow back so I have that going for me. MRI on 4/15 to check out where it stands and will do chemo from there for roughly five to six weeks. Not worried about the chemo, it's been done before and was helpful for keeping me at a good climbing weight last time, eating is not a high priority. :)

Cannot help joking about this because last time on it I had a great season, always best to look at the positive. TEMODAR is the name of the product, doing this to off what may be left of tumor cells after radiation treatment.

Hope to have enough time to participate in the Ride For Research http://www.tbts.org/ out of Boston in May, going to to be tough this year getting started so late.
Great event that I've done in the past, family and friends of those whom are left behind tend be the largest participants, makes you appreciate your own health along with the family just a bit more.

So glad to hear the visit was good. Though only *you* would figure chemo was a good way to keep in racing trim LOL! Thanks for keeping us posted. It certainly helps keep things in proper perspective.

Hope to get to ride with you soon!
