Results For The 2nd MRI
Last Friday Al went in for his second MRI to see what his tumor has been up too. We got the same stupid results as last time. It has neither grown or shrunk. We are at a stalemate right now. We are going to go one more month continuing the same chemo treatment while the docs cook up a new plan. They may add some radiation treatments to the mix next month. It is a major bummer that it didn’t shrink, but at least it didn’t grow. We still have a long battle ahead of us.
The Fundraiser Was A Huge Success
Alec’s sister did this fundraiser gig for Al and my parents. The money raised for him was presented to him last Monday. They were given a lot of money, and they want to thank everyone for being so generous and awesome! It is will help them loads with the financial burdens. Below is a pic of Alec and Lyndee by the tree that the fundraiser people presented to Alec along with the money that was raised. I am not really sure why, but they tied some of the money that was raised to the tree, and then gave Al the tree. Kinda weird, but whatever.
My Weekend With Alec
I went home last weekend and hung out with Al and family. Whenever I ask Al how he is doing he always tells me that he is just exhausted and weak. But, when I went home I forced him off his butt and made him do stuff with me. I dragged him along with me wherever I went and he did just fine. I think he is lying to us, he isn’t really tired all the time, he is just milking the situation. Sorry little bro, but you aren’t getting any sympathy from this guy 😉 We had fun, we went to the temple, walked around Walmart and took fun photos. We bought him a sweet new suit, so he can look fresh for the ladies. We went out to eat. We watched some of his favorite anime shows and I beat him in a bunch of games.
I like this picture for some reason. We got me modeling the bow tie while Alec is looking at me like I’m a crazy person. He looks at me like that a lot. I love this kid, I only wear bow ties because he wears bow ties. And yes, we tied those bow ties ourselves. We don’t do the clip on thing.
