Paperlate

Blogging tunes: talking to Rob on the phone

My lifelong pal, Rob "Big Nose Bob" Spike thought this was worth a quick blog update, and he's probably right. Good article in yesterday's SF Chronicle about the work we are doing at Salesforce.com to raise money for the LLS:

Enjoy.


Continued ass-kicking for all,

I Have a College Pal Who...

Blogging tunes: none (at work)

Quick update on a few things.

Turns out I did have a little graft versus host disease.  This is actually a good thing.  My doc put me back up to 0.5mg/day for the Tacrolimus and it went away.  So now we have a threshold for the gvh.  We'll try to go back down to 0.4 again in a month or so.  The goal is to slowly taper, but if gvh shows up, we gotta bump up the dosage to compensate.

The big news is that we're plugging away at our goal to raise $100k for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light the Night walk!  As of today, with seven days to go, we're at 20% of the team goal.  Clearly we still have a lot to do.

$20k raised as of 10/13/2011 - 5:30pm


As noted in the last post:

OK, that's it for now.  Gotta catch a Ferry.  Now that the family is back, I gotta get home at a reasonable time.

And, yes, I'm over the Phillies debacle and the Eagles stupidity.  Here's a great picture a friend sent me:


Sometimes ya just gotta laugh.

Kicking its ass,
