Eli and I are on the road to Augusta for his routine monthly start of the next cycle. Even with all the excitement of the last 2 weeks, the cycle will only be delayed two days. We are so thankful for this doctor, and how he is so attentive to details such as that, like the timing of the surgery so that Eli would not miss weeks of treatment. We have so much enjoyed just sitting back and reading and watching things that you posted as he was discharged and coming home. He has been thrilled to get all the cards , packages , balloons that have been sent his way, and the Legos, since they were

much this time of year, but still help us make just a little to pay for the float supplies. If you want one, we will ship, just go to our website and follow the t-shirt link: www.teamvictory4all.org. But, I am really excited for our end-of-the-year benefit dinner. This year our keynote speaker is Dr. Deidre Downs Gunn, Miss America 2005. She is a doc at UAB, but also as part of her "platform" during her reign, she was a spokesperson for CureSearch (which is an arm of the Children's Oncology Group, the lab we are donating to this year). I am thrilled to have her come up for us, it really gives our event some validity. I am also excited about a friend providing the dining entertainment. Steve Miller is a harpist, and will come to play, and then of course, Suzanne's Bakery will be catering the holiday dinner. Tickets are on sale, just go to that website, and if you would like to sponsor a cancer family to come just purchase the tickets and put it in the comments that you wish to donate the tickets. Thank you for the continued prayers for Eli's healing, and protection as we wean him from these drugs.
