Total victory. We faithfully watch American Ninja Warrior and were exhilarated when two competitors made it past stage 4 for the first time ever. Louie accurately predicted both of the finishers, he must sense their endurance and fortitude (it takes one to know one I suppose).
Louie had early morning chemo via his ommaya port today (in his head) and we discussed with his team what to expect when high dose chemotherapy commences late next week. Long stays, intense days, infusions, infections...we'll put that in an alcove to deal with later. Originally his follow up treatment was to last one year. I vividly remember explaining to him that while a year was 10% of his life thus far, when he lived to be 100 it would be 1% of his life which was nothing. He said "But it's a lot now". Yes, as we remarkably move into year two. His astute oncologist addressed Louie today and said "We're doing this with the intent of curing you". We believe it, we must. Total victory.
