Just wanted to update everyone. Addi and I are sick. We have been sick since Sunday. Addi is running a fever, and I was, but with other complications. Whenever I get sick I get scared a little. I had a friend named Daneen who got sick on a Thursday, found out she had lung cancer that weekend, and then died by the next weekend. This is why it scares me so much.

I also wanted to thank the people of Lawrence again. We had a great event there, and I know we did so well in raising money. Christi and I are thinking of away to make sure we show our appreciation. I hope this will be an annual event....

It has been awhile since I posted, and a lot has happened. I had a guys weekend in Pinehurst, an Addi's Cure event in Lawrence, and I have been to SEVERAL cities along the way.

First - The 5 B's Classic in Pinehurst. This is an annual event I have been to for the past 10 years. Several of my frat brothers got together at Brian Williams' dad beach place and it has grown into a major event. If you are the individual winner, not only do you get some $$b you get the pink jacket and the silver cup. I have never won this event, and I was really hoping to do well. You guessed it, bad the first day and really out of the tournament. The good news is I went 2-1 on the ryder cup part. Brian Williams did win this year, and I was happy for him. However, next year will have to be my year.

I got back yesterday from Lawrence and the Addi's Cure event. I went out to Lawrence on Saturday and played golf on Sunday with Chris Dodds, Curtis Morgan, Justin J, Phil Frost, and of course me. We played Lawrence Country Club, good track, needs 1 more year since they just redid the whole course. It was really in pretty good shape considering. On Monday night, we had an event at 23rd Street Brewery. It was packed and a lot of fun. There was a silent auction, etc. There were many volunteers, and I know I will miss some, but here is a good try: Jen and Bill Newton, Mel, Erin, Crystal, Bev, Red Dog, Mom (Terri Morgan), Randy and Catherine Glidewell and Cyndi, Ami and Caitlin. Each person was really important in getting this thing going. Crystal, Christi's sister, had the idea and boy did everyone pull it off. If I missed someone, please let me know so I can post them.

As far as my health, I am still doing fine. I am a little worried of course, my next scans are August 7th. Again, the goal is 5 years. That means I have to stick around until June 1, 2011. Thanks to everyone who keeps me on track.

There have been several new articles and interviews if you would like to watch them. Go to addiscure.org and look on the left hand side. There are some really good ones from Lawrence. The young lady at channel 6 did an outstanding job.

Please say an extra prayer for the Acker family this week as well. Little Gabby is doing great, she is having to be let down slowly off some very hard drugs she had to have when they fixed her heart. She got addicted to them, so it is a difficult process. Please take time to pray for them.

I will write more soon. I hope Christi will post some new pictures of Addi as well.

Hello Everyone (Christi) So I beat a week by one day. For those out there sorry about that. Things here have been a typical summer. Addi just finished up with her swim lessons this week. She loves the water, but was a little mad at the teacher. (The first day she fell off the steps and went under water. I do have to say she did well. She held her breath and tried to swim, but needless to day she was a little mad and untrusting of the teacher) But by the end they would play, swim and blow bubbles together.
This weekend is Bo's annual golf tournament with the boys in the Pinehurst location. (I was corrected that they are not playing Pinehurst, just in the area) So he will be off to that and enjoying some male bonding time. Scary thought. So Addi and I will be hanging with the other husband less wives, probably talking smack about how they left us with the kids and we need to pay them back with the trip to New York, shopping.
Anyway things here are good.
Bo did have a question about his diet. He is still maintaining eating healthy. Each morning he has a shake, smoothie and for dinner we eat a lot of fish and organic veggies. If you live in the Cornelius/Huntersville area there is a great company, Absolute Organics, that once a week delivers a box full of organic veggies and fruits. They change up each week, so it is nice to eat different foods. It is a little hard to maintain the diet when sauces are pretty much out of the question. We grill a lot of foods. I stay away from sauces that have high fructose corn syrup, which is about anything that tastes good. (I guess if you pour the sugar in anything because sweet and good) So that limits us some. I still believe staying away from sugars is important. So I am working on my natural spices, we have learned we are not huge rosemary fans :( There is limit to how much you can add.
Enough rambling about food, thank goodness Bo doesn't post what I cook anymore. I was feeling a lot of pressure.
Take care everyone and see you soon

I have a question, what medicines are you taking now and what are the side effects and how well do you think they are working??

Right now I am taking Tarceva and Avastin. Tarceva is a pill I take every day. Avastin is a drug I take every three weeks intravenously. Both are targeted therapy drugs, which means they go directly to the cancer and work on it there....

I know I have not posted for awhile, so I wanted to get back into the swing of things. I was really sick with a cold at the beginning of the week, but I am better now. I played 18 on Friday afternoon with Aviva, and then went to a tourn on Sat but I only played 9. Felt a little week, so I decided to just finish the 9 and go home. Sunday we all went out on the boat and had a great time. We will do the same on the 4th as well.

I am very excited about going to several places this fall. Christi and I are going to go to Greece and I also am going to go to Scotland to play golf. We are very lucky to travel like we do.

I wish everyone could spend some quality time with Addi. She is becoming quite the young woman. She slept last night in her big girl bed, and she is so excited. She is taking swimming lessons and she loves boating. I went ahead and got Panther tickets this year so she is going to be my little Panther fan...... She is really awesome. Christi will put so new pictures up soon.

Doesn't anyone have any questions????? Send them to me.
