Today is ASCT +77. It is also New Year’s Day. Happy New Year!

For the first time in a long time, Kathleen and I went out to dinner for our 36th wedding anniversary that was yesterday, New Year’s Eve. We had a good meal at Tavolino Della Nonna. The only problem was a rather rudely loud person at the next table.

The best thing I have to report is that Kris, Kirsten, and Jeph came down from Massachusetts to join us on Christmas Day and stayed 4 nights, returning on Sunday. Kathleen and I really enjoyed their visit. We had a delicious Christmas dinner of standing rib roast, mashed potatoes, and broccoli, with apple pie for dessert with home-made vanilla ice cream. Better than any restaurant that I have found. We followed this with some other good meals, Cacio e Pepe with Caesar Salad, and pork cutlets with buttered noodles. Breakfasts were good too: French toast, waffles, and pancakes, one for each morning. Didn’t need much lunch.

Kirsten arrived with a cold or flu. We gave her, Kris, Jeph lots of time to rest, which they really needed. We watched some movies, and went out to an Asian restaurant on their last night here. It was Jeph’s birthday the day after Christmas and Kirsten and Kathleen made him a chocolate cake, which we all enjoyed with more ice cream.

Apparently, my immune systems must be up and running pretty well. It is now a week later and I have no cold or flu. Yes we did take precautions such as frequent hand washings, paper napkins, and no kissing 😷😟.

I get my blood draw for re-staging in a week and visit Krishna a week later for results. In faith, I expect complete remission.

Thank you, Lord Jesus, for my healing and the healing received by Barbara, Herma, Berris, Nicola, Sylvia, Lily, Mike, and Joe.
