2008: So glad to see you go
It's been a tough year. Definitely the most difficult that we've ever faced, and hopefully this year will go down with that record.
I'm looking forward to 2009 for many reasons:
In 2009 Madeleine will no longer be in treatment, and will be on her way to being deemed, "cancer-free."
In 2009 she will have her Hickman line removed and we will begin swim lessons.
In 2009 Ryan will officially be a postdoc, and no longer a graduate student. (We are very proud of Dr. Ryan, as he successfully defended his dissertation this month and earned his PhD!).
In 2009 we will, hopefully, have enough money to survive unassisted by our very generous families.
In 2009 all three of us will have have medical, dental and vision health insurance.
In 2009 we are likely to moving somewhere new, depending on where Ryan gets hired.
In 2009 Humphrey will behave and no longer chew up Christmas presents (true story), or toys....one can dream, right?
I hope that everyone has a safe and happy New Year's.
