Just in time, it looks like the chemo is no longer working. His cancer markers are through the roof, but they are going to re-check the marker before dad's next oncology appt. Right now he's in the hospital fighting a secondary infection, fluid on the lungs and severe anemia. After a few days and over hydrating him and giving him a bag of blood he at least has his mind back (the fog and confusion lifted yesterday afternoon). I talked to him yesterday morning a few times in a hour because he had a funny story to tell me, but he couldn't remember that we had just talked a few minutes before. And I never got the funny story because he kept forgeting to tell me. It's so hard being so far away with all this happening now. But here are a couple of my memories for Gabe.

Me, mom, dad and Gabe

Mom, dad and my neice
Mom to 3 (1998, 2000, and 2009), step-mom to 1 (1995), two four-legged babies who bark, wife and full time student.
My days are busy, my house is messy, and my heart is full!
