We’ve hit a good stride heading toward tomorrow’s procedure… thankful to have extended moments to focus on being thankful.

In no particular order I’m grateful for…
Family, friends, community and all the benevolent forces of the universe. Good medicine, good food, warrior spirit, coffee, sunshine, lemon ice, pickles, Frozen…
Children’s Hospital Oakland, caring nurses, stuffed animals, hepa filters, Dora, blood transfusions, nerds, and the bacteria from which chemo drugs are synthesized.

I’m most grateful for strength… strength for Maya and every other child to be unafraid when facing challenges large or small, and the strength for those who care to provide unwavering support and reassurance through it all.

Thank you.
