Hi Kate -
Zach was here this eve for dinner - a menu that he requested! A favorite and
healthy meal . . . yet, I surprised him with Mom's brownies! Took them home
to share at work and with brother, Ben, who is driving down tomorrow from
Boston to spend the weekend with him.
Kate, he is a wonder! Has all the info which he shared with me tonight . . .
the chemo will not be easy; he knows he may be hospitalized, yet is already
fighting against that. Told him that me casa e su casa if he needs to be with
someone - my company has given me "charte blanche" for time off - amazing.
I gave him a Livestrong wristband tonight - so excited! Noticed I was
wearing one. Also gave him a Journal Book . . . to write down feelings, emotions .
. . he looked at me and said ,you know me so well . . . have been thinking
about being the younger Lance Armstrong . . . to get pediatrisions (sp) to
educate boys about their testicles, to feel them et al. To know when something is
not right. Zach has never had any sensitivity there, so this was a total
surprise! A lump around his stomach is what started everything 5 weeks ago.
He looks terrific - the weight loss is where he wants to be . . . 6' 2"
tall - has been heavy - is now "GQ"
wants to maintain this look! So, I started to document with a photo . . .
with many more to come!
He is living life and is educated. And our inspiration.
All love ,

We will miss you. I know these are not easy days ahead for you and your
family. What a blessing that Zach has you, and that you can support him going
forward. I was very moved by the generosity of his co-workers giving up vacation
time for him. We will take lots of pictures and be thinking of you. I hope
and believe that you will find the courage and strength you need, and that
Zach will find the healing he needs.
