Beautiful vacation


Christine and I enjoyed our post-treatment celebration vacation in many ways. The hightlights, including some unexpected surprises:

- Had a refreshing time with Christine's family and grandmother (without feeling crummy!). Together we enjoyed good food, good music, and just hanging out. It has been too long.

- Spent two days in beautiful Brandiwine Valley. I've lived in Boston and Philly for six years and the foliage was as intense and colorful as I've ever seen it. And we found some great restaurants in the valley (good food was a theme throughout the week)

- Got to sit in on the rehersal of Sarabeth and Melina in their school musical.

- Spent some very encouraging time catching up some good friends in Philly: the Corvinos, Lindhs, Gaffins, Salsburys, Currys, and Chris Meyer.

- Went to CCEF Annual Conference. They are the counseling arm of Westminster Seminary, where I graduated. The conference topic I'd sum up as an anatomy of anger - its source, what it reveals, righteous and unrighteous anger, how does it fit into the gospel, redeeming anger, etc.

- Enjoyed Monday Night Football with my brother-in-law, Michael (I probably enjoyed it more - he's an Eagles fan)

Dear Greg,
Thanks for sharing the joy. Hearing about your vacation which sounds ( and looks ) wonderful, made my day.
Mehpare has finished round 6 /12 of oxaliplatin & 5fu & avastine. She had a 1 week break and feels pretty strong & ready to continue.
We both send best regards from Istanbul.
