So much to be thankful for!

Hi everyone! Not much to talk about in regards to my health – everything is going great. Tests continue to show that I am cancer-free and that the donor cells are working their butts off. I am starting to get out more and more, getting myself back into the “real” world. On January 7th it will be my 100 days since transplant which is the first and major mile marker in the transplant world, we will be home in Dana Point for it, so please have a toast for me on that day!

I just want to spend a second and thank everyone for all the thoughts and prayers this past year, your support has not only helped ME get through this but my wife and family as well. I continue to fight and will never give up for myself as well as all of you. I would like to say thanks to Rick (my brother and donor) for stepping up and saving my life – if it wasn’t for him I probably wouldn’t be here today – you are a godsend and I will always owe you my life. My wife for being my rock my air my everything, if it wasn’t for you by my side I am not sure I would of gotten this far – I love you. To gary – you have dropped your life twice for me and Kat and I can’t thank you enough, we have grown so much closer together this last year and I wouldn’t change it for the world. Mike and Michele you both have been there for me and Kat and I love just being able to talk to you guys and see the progress of my niece and nephew. Mom and Dad – You two have been amazing I couldn’t ask for better parents more supportive parents and more loving parents, I can’t thank you enough for everything. Mom and Dad # 2 (kat’s parents) I don’t get to see you enough and that sucks, but you both have been there every step of the way and I love you both so much – thanks for all the love and support. Boonie you are an Angel to our family – thanks thanks thanks.

With that said, I want everyone to have a safe and merry Christmas and New Years – may the new year be much better then last.

Love you all,
