Update from Taffy

I just wanted to let everyone know that Sean is home now with Karen and doing very well.  They released him yesterday afternoon because he had made such great progress.  His color is a lot better and his strength seems to be returning.  I was skeptical about his making it up the three flights of stairs to their condo, but he did just fine!  Karen made him some of her delicious homemade chicken noodle soup for his first night home and we played the game Apples to Apples with them.
 
As far as the trip to Indiana, it will still most likely happen, but Dr. Einhorn has been in contact with Dr. Chandramouli and his recommendation was to wait a month and then do testing to see if the yolk sac cancer markers are elevated again to determine the next course of action.  Sean has decided to wait until the results come back before making the trip.  We'll keep you posted as we know more. 
 
Today is Karen's 21st birthday, and she and Sean are excited to watch the game today and be together!  
 
Happy Birthday Karen, and thanks for taking such good care of Sean!
 
We love you both so much!
