Kathleen had a good day today! Normally, the low point of the chemo treatment is Sunday morning and she made it through the night without barfing even once. The usual chest pain (not her heart) came back again around midnight, but we had the tools to deal with it. I think being more aggressive with the dex as suggested by Dr. DeC (temp oncologist while main guy is away) as well as better managing her blood sugars helped a lot. She was feeling so good, that she was able to come out to the race to meet me at the finish line and snap a few pics! We even went out after for breakfast at the Dearborn with Elaine and our friend Jan from BC who is here looking after her aunt. After breakfast and the sugar crash, a nice 3hr nap! Good thing we set reminders for medical events in our smart phones as we would have slept through the chemo disconnect time!
Thank you to everyone for supporting me in this run! We managed to raise just under $3,000 dollars which is fantastic!
I of course had Kathleen’s name on the front, and I put my friend Maureen’s on the back. It should be on the back as she has left cancer behind her! Hopefully in a couple of years, Kath’s name will be there too!

My business partner and friend Keith came out to run with me and give me support which was very much appreciated!
The route for anyone interested was http://connect.garmin.com/player/228565416. The road part is not so nice, but the trail run by the river was very pretty.
