We are on our way!

With about 24 hr. notice we packed up the car and are on our way to Minneapolis.  We are packed in like sardines but managed to even find room for Paul's golf clubs.  Coleson got to say goodbye to his nurses at Phoenix Children's after his treatment today.  Thanks Chris, Allison, Ashley and everyone else for taking such good care of him.  Peyton had her first gymnastics recital after a week of gymnastics camp and I got to say a few quick goodbyes at work today.  We will probably make it to Albuquerque at around midnight.  I didn't get much of a chance to let everyone know that we got the green light.  We will arrive on Sunday and go straight into a week of testing to ensure Coleson is healthy enough to withstand the chemo and transplant.  I'll be posting regularly from here on out as we are in for quite a ride over the next few months.  The sun has just set as we drive eastward, nothing much to look at from here to Albuquerque but highway and 18 wheelers!
