Two Steps Forward; One Step Back

We have had much to celebrate lately with Jack while Andrew keeps plugging along with treatment.  Attending Garfield prom, 18th birthday, graduation and graduation party - it's been a whirlwind for all of us.  Thank you to all our friends and family who made it out to support Jack.  And special thanks to the Garfield community and Principal Howard for calling Jack out one last time at graduation.  We're happy and inspired to continue to be part of this community.

Andrew went back to work for a short period at the beginning of June, but is now back on medical leave.  Everyone at WSGR was incredibly supportive while Andrew was in the office but it was a little early in his treatment plan to jump back into working full time (told him so . . .).  He started his fifth cycle on June 17th a little more run down and has not bounced back as quickly this round, but anticipates that he'll start feeling stronger by next week.

Unfortunately, we were not able to participate in the LLS Cup at Elliott Bay Marina in June.  The crew just didn't feel like going forward with the regatta with Jack in the hospital and Captain Andrew still on the mend.  We're grateful to LLS and the other participants that made the event a success and look forward to enlisting a few more sailors for Team Bryant next year.

Next up on the agenda (in addition to some birthday festivities on Monday) will be another CT scan on July 3.  Andrew's last set of scans showed significant reduction in tumor size, but SCCA wants to confirm results before proceeding with his sixth and hopefully final cycle.  Really looking forward to being on the other side of this by end of July!
