I come today with fabulous news! Kurtis had a CT scan last week to check his abdomen and his lungs. We have been nervously awaiting the results ... today especially. But, when the doctor came into the room today he immediately told us that everything was shrinking which is wonderful.
Kurtis continues to have normal HCG readings and will now have to have his blood tested using a "high sensitivity test" which should tell us what number he is exactly at. All we know right now is less than 2, but that is comforting enough as all we need is for it to be normal (and it is).
Not a whole lot new is going on here, or it doesn't feel new anyway. I'm back at school and currently teaching two sections of English 9/World Lit combo classes and one section of College Prep Reading. I've got great students and it is a whole lot of fun. In a few weeks, Kurtis will be going through the sub orientation for the school district up here and start out subbing by helping me run my intensive (a week long class that is different from "normal" classes) at school. I'm teaching a whole bunch of social studies simulations which should be a ton of fun for us and the kids.
We are currently fostering three adorable puppies until they can find homes. We've had them about a week now and it is fun to get to play with them and watch Chauncey be the "big brother." They wear him out, but he really enjoys having them in the house. Their names are Dexter, Helton, and Tracy (Rockies theme...) and we're hoping that they are able to find homes soon.
This weekend Kurtis is playing in a golf tournament in Holyoke and we are going to hit up the Rockies game Monday. I know he will enjoy playing golf with his dad and it will be nice to spend Monday afternoon at the ballpark.
On September 17, there will be a benefit for Kurtis in Holyoke. We don't have all the info yet, but it encompasses a golf tournament, dinner, and dance. As soon as I have access to the flier, I'll get it posted up here.
Thank you for your continued positive thoughts -
Liz (Kurtis and Chauncey)
