A new year

Blake's 3-month scans are clear. Hooray! This marks a year from the cancer removed from his lung. He won't be scanned again until February. 6-month scans for the next year. He is also trying to increase his exercises so that his left leg is back to full strength. The cane has been needed less and less; last week we went on a half-mile, very hilly walk and Blake didn't bring his cane at all.

Cal Arts did not move Blake off the wait list, so a gap year it will be. Goals for the next year include a short film, portfolio work, a driver's license and a year to get stronger and have some fun.
