  • Oh My Goodness, what a few weeks you all have had. I miss not getting to see you in person, but am glad for any undates you provide. I hope the coming of Spring brings healthier and more stable days. Thinking of you all the time. Much love, Gari

  • Wow! Cancun, the ER, a flu epidemic, and Grann on the pull-out for days on end.... You guys could write a book! Glad this bout with the bacterial bugs seems to have passed with relative ease, though (except for that nasty-tasting prescription, of course!).

    Good luck with the continued pox-watch -- hope those particular chickens don't hatch!

    Love and healthy thoughts to one and all,

    Kris, Rob, Emily, Danny, and Laura

  • Haven't been in touch for waaaayyy too long. Reading about your last couple of weeks has prompted goosebumps, hairs to stand up on my arms and some wild eyes-popping-out-of-the-head stuff. You should have seen me Simon! My son Cliff and I have some Beanie Babies we'd like you to check out (to see if you already have them) and give a new home if you're interested - and none of them has had the chicken pox either!!! Let me know when we can swing them by - and Mom and Dad, let me know where I can come in handy. XOXOXOXO to all from one more admirer for Valentine's Day and always! Lois

  • Simon and parents : Happy Valentine's Day - think of you often and hope the trials of waiting or knowing about Chichen Pox are soon over. I wanted to ell you that my good friend Martha Garber from Michigan tells me that the Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City is great. She and her husband Larry's best friends was head of oncology there and has just stepped down as head of the dept. but would be a good source of info if you need it. It is snowy here and we are expecting more this week-end. All my kids except for Lucy and Logan have gone skking out west in Utah. Lucy can't go because of teaching and also she will be gone to Spain with students in March if we are not at war. Oh well..hope life is settling down somewhat and people are feeling better in your family. Love, Lee

  • I am *so* sorry to hear about your trials and tribulations of last week! It's hard enough when one person in a family feels crummy, but when three or more are hacking, fevering, and just generally feeling tired and grumpy, well, that's *really* no fun! Glad you were able to distract yourselves at least a big with some great games and puzzles. Keep doing what, by now, you all do so well -- persevering, and surmounting obstacles! We're thinking of you and wishing you well on all fronts. Fondly, Kris, et al.

  • Simon, Miriam, Mary and Markus,

    We just wanted to add our voices to the choir of people saying we hope those "worstest days ever" are over, that this week is better than last, and that next week is better yet. We want to say we are SURE it will get BETTER - but we're afraid you'll think, "Well, that's easy for YOU to say!". But sure we are, nonetheless. The sun is out a little longer each day, these flus and colds and even chicken pox, if that's what it is, will get over-with. And Simon will keep on doing the hard work of fighting the cancer and this round of chemo will kill off lots and lots of cancer cells. Meantime, like all your friends, we keep thinking of you and rooting for you.

    Cheers until soon,
    Marta, Paul and Sam

  • Hi there. We continue to think about you and to hope that you haven't seen any of those itchy chicken pox! Strangely, at this moment we're glad we don't live near enough to visit you, because Emily's had a nasty viral infection that's kept her out of school for the better part of two weeks, if you can believe it -- we sure wouldn't want you worrying about *that* in addition to chicken pox!

    Laura, who's wearing her olive oil cap at the moment and is waiting for her get-rid-of-any-last-remaining-nits bath, says "hi!" We're really glad we've found no lice for the past several weeks, which means -- hooray -- this is our last weekend in maintenance mode! And someone recently told us that tea tree oil can help keep lice away (they apparently don't like the smell), so we're going to get ourselves some of that, since we seem to have such "hospitable" children! ;-)

    Thinking about you. Take care. Kris, Rob, Emily, Danny, and Laura

    Lexi and Lawrie went to a some music workshops at Lexi's school today. We learned some songs, dances and about different musical instruments. We had one session learning to play an African drum.
    After playing the drum, Lexi said "I bet Simon would like this drum. He likes cool stuff."
    We continue to hold you, Mirium and your mom and dad in our prayers everyday.

    Madi signs and says "we think of them in here and here" as she points to her head and her heart.

    Love, Madi,Lexi, Lawrie and Curt

  • Simon - well I hope you don't get the chicken pox, but if you do I know you will handle it . I am so glad you are liking school. I hear there is a chance some of your family , or maybe all, will be going to Utah sometime soon to househunt. Hope it works out. Can't believe that you are going to be 6 in March - right? I need to know just when in March. Lots of love, Lee

  • Hi Simon,

    Like many of your admirers, we also check this website very often and we are very grateful to your family for giving us such a great place to stay up-to-date about you, and to read the other great messages from all your friends. We heard that you have resumed chemo because your platelets were all the up around 85,000 - it sounds like that body of yours is doing a really good job of fighting back. We are hoping this round of chemo is not too terrible and that you don't get chicken pox. We are sure you will manage if you do, but it would be nice if there was one bit of hard work you could just skip for now!

    We are paying attention to the fact that you have a birthday coming up - March, isn't it? - and we're hoping the information on the "Simon's Favorites" part of this site will be nice and up to date near birthday time!

    Best wishes to you and to Miriam and your mom and dad,

    Marta, Paula and Sam

    Sorry to hear about the mess with the Chicken Pox! I think about you all the time and check this site every few days - thanks for all the recent updates. I'm really hoping to make to Ann Arbor this spring sometime - but I'll be taking a big chunk of time off to go see Brian in Maine - he's doing well there and we're keeping our fingers crossed that he ends up staying there.....
    In any event - I hope to get to visit you all soon!

  • Hi there! Hope the chemo treatments are going OK this week. Also hope that the two different medicines -- one that stops you up and the other that unplugs the dike, so to speak, maybe will cancel each other out so you won't be too uncomfortable....

    Danny's participating in a spelling bee today. He was kind of nervous. Interestingly, though, he seemed less concerned about making a mistake on the words and more concerned about how his friends would feel if he did better than they did, or about how he'd feel if his friends did better than he.

    There are so many things we can worry about if we try, huh? But my mother-in-law sent me an inspirational e-mail story that advised: "Count your blessings, not your problems." So I suggested that Danny could think about the fact that both he and his friends had *already* done a great job by having spelled well enough in the pre-spelling bee to be chosen for the grade-wide bee, and that was something about which *all* of them to feel proud, regardless of how this particular bee came out.

    I guess it's the same with you, Simon. No matter whether the treatments this time around are yucky or just ho-hum, you can already feel justifiably proud of all the hard things you've faced so far and know that whatever side-effects the medicines throw your way this time, you've already proved you're a pro and you can handle it. You may feel angry sometimes, you may feel frustrated at other times, but you've got the inner "spunk" that helps you keep going. What a guy! You're my hero -- did you know that?

    Hugs to you and Miriam and to your mom and dad, too. We're proud of you!

    Fondly, Kris, Rob, Emily, Danny, and Laura

  • Guess what, Simon? Danny wants to get a buzz cut, which would mean he'd have that suave look you've got as your hair's growing back in again. His reason? Because, unfortunately, we're having a little head lice epidemic here in Clinton, and he wants to discourage the lice from setting up camp on *his* head!

    Do you know what lice are? They're these teeny-tiny little bugs that like to live on people's heads and lay their eggs right near the scalp, on the hair shaft, where it's nice and toasty warm for the little baby lice. Well, it's all very pleasant and homey when you think about it from the *louse's* perspective (you say "louse" when there's only one of them -- I guess it's kind of like saying one mouse and two or more mice...). But, because it gets kind of itchy after a while, when there's a whole bunch of them forming a little colony on your head, it's not such a happy situation from the host's perspective (the host is the person who's got the lice in his or her hair -- not that you particularly *want* to host them, mind you ... it's not nearly as much fun as hosting a party, after all ... but that's what they call it! ;-) Anyway, we dealt with another lice infestation this past fall, and it appears Laura's brought them home again this week.

    Oh well. We're trying to do "the Simon thing" and look on the bright side of the situation. So, when I had to put the kids to bed the other night with olive oil all over their hair (to get rid of the lice and make it easier to remove their little eggs), and then when I washed the oil out of their hair the next morning and it ended up floating around in the tub water for a while as the kids waited for me to be done with the multiple washings and rinsings it took to get rid of all that oil, Danny said: "Well, at least our skin will be nice and soft and smooth from all this olive oil!" And he was right -- it was just like using bath oil!

    So thanks, Simon, for helping us to look on the bright side! Even when we're sometimes not so happy with the way things are going, or are feeling impatient that we're not getting through a "rough patch" quickly enough, we realize we can almost always find a silver lining, or something to laugh about, if we just look hard enough! You and your family are so good at that, you help us be better at it, too.

    And speaking of silver linings: at 25 degrees today, it felt like a veritable heat wave compared to the sub-zero temps we've had recently! How 'bout you -- has it been cold in Ann Arbor, too? Anyway, from "balmy" Upstate New York, we send all of you our warmest wishes!

    Love, Kris, Rob, Emily, Danny, and Laura

    Can I come to your Yoga for Kids class??? Most adults are just overgrown kids anyway, right? ;-)

    And isn't it nice to be back in school again. My kids couldn't wait to go back -- it was fun having the time off, but then they missed their friends and all the fun stuff they get to learn.

    Enjoy! And keep on keepin' on!

  • Dear Simon, Miriam, Mary and Markus,
    We're sorry we missed you during your Oberlin stay over Christmas. Four of our grandchildren were here then, too and would have loved to have met all of you. We did have a wonderful sledding on Oberlin Mountain and in the Arboretum. Weren't we lucky to have such wonderful snow just when you all and our grandkids were here?
    I like your new photo showing off your dark hair.
    We leave to drive to California tomorrow to enjoy the snow (even though there is lots here, it is even deeper in CA. and better for skiing), to meet our new granddaughter, Mera, born on December 27th, and see her parents, Dirk and Marty and her brother, JC who is 2 and 4 months.
    We think of all of you often and wish for Simon lots of strength and determination to chase those nasty mean destructive cells out of his body for ever and ever and for the rest of you patience and fortitude to help him do so and survive happily yourselves.
    Love, Dina and Dick

  • Here's the joke that Simon brought home from his day visiting at Linda's daycare (school starts up again on Monday).

    Q: If runners get athlete's foot, what do astronauts get?

    A: Mistle-toe!

    [Hinweis fuer Deutschsprachige: im Englischen ist das Wort "missle" (=Rakete) genau gesprochen wie das "mistle" in "mistletoe" (=Mistel). Und schoene Gruesse allerseits!]

    The source of this joke was the newsletter of Community Supported Anthroposophical Medicine, the practice of Simon's doctor Molly McMullen. The primary anthroposophical anti-cancer therapy is Iscador (mistletoe extract). So, this is definitely an "in" joke!

  • Happy New Year! We're sending lots of warm, loving vibes your way, hoping, along with everyone else you know, I'm sure, for some encouraging results from the bone marrow biopsy.

    And here's a new joke for a new year (we think it's a Danny original; but, well, one never knows...):

    Dan asked me last night,

    Q: "What do you call a witch at the beach?"

    After trying several other answers that (Danny was delighted to tell me) were unfortunately incorrect, I had a brainstorm.... Thinking myself *very* clever, I answered, with gusto,

    A: "A sand-witch!"

    But Danny fooled me and said:

    A: "Something nice, or she'll turn you into a toad!" ;-)

    That made good sense to me! Next time I see a witch at the beach, I'm going to be *sure* to follow that advice or else.... Ribbit, ribbit, ribbit!

    We'll be thinking about you. Love,

    Kris, Rob, Emily, Danny, and Laura

  • Hi Simon - Happy New Year! We tried to go skiing in New York over New Years, but mother nature didn't cooperate and sent rain, so we only got out one day instead of our planned three. Even so, Alex got to finally try snowboarding, and although he'll need more practice, he's already decided that it's lots of fun and better than skiing. Have you ever done either one? I bet you'd have a blast!

    I'll be thinking of you today and sending lots of prayers and crossed-fingers your way for your bone marrow biopsy. Love, Jean
