Happy New Year's Eve

I'm dashing to prepare what has turned into a seven course meal (five courses for six people plus two additional dishes for one in our party who is allergic to shellfish). What have I gotten myself into!!! :)

So this will be quicker than I'd like.

It's been an extraordinary year. One marked by fear, despair, and pain...but also hope, faith, and love.

I have been so moved to have seen this community of support grow...I've mentioned this before but you each mean a lot to me.

I'm incredibly lucky that I had the time to research the disease, find BB, and put my trust in him.

And I look forward to a new year that begins with no disease, and ends the same way, as I march towards MRI remission and, hopefully, a formal statement of "you're cured, Nick."

I'm assembling some interesting charts on bloodwork that I'm resolving to publish here in the New Year. That's one good resolution that I think I can keep! We'll see what others pop up. But for now, it's time to eat a lot of food, drink a lot of wine, and celebrate the end of our Anno Horribilis.


  1. Happy New Year! Your family is gorgeous. Looking forward to celebrating health with you in the new year. XOXO

  2. Have a great New Year Nick

  5. What a beautiful family. Bruce and I truly love you guys. Wishing you the best in 2010 and hope to see you in January or at some point in time at Little Rock. Need to have a glass of wine and just reflect.
