Hans likes to try to jump right on the huge beach ball.
We got the all clear to start Round 25 of MLN 8237 tonight. We met our new home team and I think it is going to go really well. Dr. Marachelian is actually the head of the New Advances in Neuroblastoma Therapies (NANT - a primary NB Consortium) so Hans is extremely fortunate to have such brainpower on his side on both coasts. We liked the team and got some referrals to figure out our local care. It's kind of exciting to explore a new city. I haven't spent much time in LA at all and the hospital is right on Sunset Boulevard, so there is a lot to check out. We tried one place, El Chavo, for chips n salsa, but according to Hans we'll have to keep looking. Not a bad job - finding the perfect Mexican joint in LA.
I'm such a counter. 102 boxes to go. My goal is to do 10 boxes a day for the next 10 days... We shall see...
In sad news, Kevin's grandma Lorraine Weberling passed away early this week. She was a sweet, sweet lady. She'd just about kiss your face off when she saw you. I keep remembering that Kevin stayed with his grandparents while working in the cherry orchards in high school and college in Mattawa, WA. He'd have to be up and in the orchard by 5am. His grandma would wake up every morning to fix him a workman's breakfast of sausage, eggs, potatoes and toast at 4:30 am! She was that kind of lady. We hope that Kevin will be able to join his dad's side of the family for a small memorial next week. That's one of the blessings of being on this Coast; to be able to get back home when needed.
