Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there today! I cannot wait for next year to celebrate it with Ben and the four little ones! It has been a long time coming.

We got all the arrangements made to do my ultrasounds in Dartmouth every other week and to Boston the opposite weeks for my OB appointments and ultrasounds. Ben won't be able to see them this week because the only slot they had was during his chemo so I took it. At least it saves me 7 hours in the car this week.

Ben's physical therapy is coming along well, they gave him braces to wear and they are helping him walk more steady. He has good days and bad days but he is starting to look much better to me. In another month he will have a second PET scan and that will show if the chemo is working or if they need to change the course. I think it is working, the Doctor said at the last visit that his lymph nodes have shrunk down to half the size they were when he came in.

The babies have middle names finally!

Nine years ago this summer there was so much uncertainty, would Ben make it through his treatments?  Would I be able to carry all four babi...
