Only good news today. Mrs. LeBrain just met with Dr. Sugimoto, for what is likely to be the very last time. “Dr. Sugi” inspected her incision and is very happy not only with how it’s looking, but how well Jen has managed since her surgery almost two months ago. She’s been out and about every day for the last few weeks, sometimes even by herself. She’s getting stronger. Personally I think she’s stronger now than she was before the surgery.
“Dr. Sugi” says we don’t have to come to London anymore. He is satisfied that Jen has kicked cancer’s ass. No more trips to London, and sadly, no more Dr. Sugimoto. It’s been an emotional time and we’ve grown very attached to him. It’s weird to say, but we will all miss him.
The drive down to London was a piece of cake. Rush’s A Farewell to Kings was the soundtrack. I don’t know how it’s possible but she fell asleep during “Cygnus X-1”. For the trip home, I chose All The World’s A Stage. She was blown away by Peart’s legendary drum solo.
Remaining positive in the face of adversity is not easy, But Jen has managed to do it. She gets up each day and kicks ass, and looks forward to doing it again the next day. We still struggle knowing we cannot have kids, but being alive and healthy is so much more important than that. It really is. Her positive attitude through this has been inspiring. I hope readers have gained that much from her.
We had one errand to run on the way home. As you hopefully already know, March 9 is the release date of Judas Priest’s brand new Firepower album! I ran in and out of the mall in less than five minutes — I am the man! The deluxe edition of Firepower is in my happy hands. Rock journalist Mitch Lafon says it’s already his #1 album of 2018. Time to put Firepower to the test!
