Superstars at Griffith Observatory
From the Wife:
Today is the 4th dose of AP23573...Marco has been doing well under the treatment. Of course we don't know if he is taking the real deal or the placebo pill. We hope and will believe that he is taking the real thing. Today is also a month and 7 days that Marco has been "cancer free" since his surgery to remove the tumor from his lung on May 11.
Marco has been doing ok and has been trying to do things outside the house....here are some examples:
Monday- The Griffith Observatory:
This trip was nice we got to tour the whole museum all three floors and took full advantage of the beautiful view from up there. Its amazing (it was overcast but nice). The view at night was spectacular. We said we would go back to be able to look through the telescope on a clear day. The pictures above show you some of the things we did.
Saturday Adan called Marco to join in on a baseball game with all the guys....so I asked if they expected him to play and he laughed saying that Adan was counting him in but Marco told him he was on disability and still recovering and would not be able to play. Adan said um...so your suspended for drug use too. Marco laughed and said yeah. So we ended up going and Marco was the umpire/scorekeeper. Yeah, that went well....At times I think Marco would zone out and I asked him if he mentioned to them that he still had some chemo brain. Marco laughed and said no but I should have.
We like to see that he gets out and enjoys himself. Marco still has pain along with soreness and some day's its more than others. It's all part of the recovery...it will take some time.
Monday he will have his one week follow up for the AP23573 treatment with blood work...I will let you know if anything comes up.
