Update! October 1

Good Morning and hello!

Since it is October, I thought it would be a good time for our first update of the month! Right now, everything is going really well and Kurtis and I are slowly getting life back to normal.  Day by day it gets closer and closer.

Kurtis is doing well.  We just got his most recent HCG number back and it is currently less than .5 which is awesome! I always tell Kurtis "good job!" when he gets his low numbers back - seems a little silly since it isn't anything he can control besides taking his medicines :).  He met with the doctor on Wednesday and he was very pleased with Kurtis' progress!  Earlier in the week, Kurtis had to get a blood transfusion because the chemo pills knocked down his blood counts...but it's normal and he feels a lot better now that he's had the transfusion.

This past week was "intensive/adventure" week at Polaris and I had a really big group this time so Kurtis was my additional help in the form of a sub.  We worked with great kids all week and did a whole bunch of simulations which was fun.  I think the week was pretty tiring for K, but he's certainly enjoyed working again!  This weekend we don't have a whole lot going on...but we're going to go watch some of our lax girls play rugby a little later and we had the chance to watch some of our lax girls play field hockey last weekend. 

Hard to believe it is October already!  The weather in Fort Collins has been insanely hot (for the season) and I'm really ready for the fall weather.  Or at the very least, a drop in temperature by about fifteen degrees! We're enjoying watching football and playoff baseball. 

Other than that, not a whole lot new is going on here.

Sending love!

Liz (Kurtis and Chauncey)
