Ray and Reed and Duke and I walked up, and I mean up to the top of the mountain above where we are parked here near Santa Cruz at a private campground. Steve drove Jaden up in the car so we could all be together.
At the top of the mountain it is flat and level and used for parking during summer camps. Someone has made the coolest swing there. Reed enjoyed it!
Wow..this is the miracle picture! Reed actually looked at the camera! Isn't he just the handsomest young man? He has moved on from Cute Boy!
And here is Duke! He is looking pretty good! He has completed seven weeks of chemo and has some strength back. He has made it to the top of the big hill twice now...slow and steady is the trick with lots of rest afterwards. His nodes are down and he is in remission. We take each day as it comes and love him for as long as we are fortunate to have him.
