Vince has spirit week this week, which can only mean that Homecoming is this weekend. The first day was class color day. Freshmen got assigned purple. Vince got to wear the Team Mary Ann shirt which is infused with happiness because Mary Ann is doing fantastic. When the shirt was printed, we were all hoping against all hope for a miracle and sometimes miracles happen (well, a miracle which was the work of a lot of scientists) and it happened to Mary Ann. Mary Ann is one of my nursing role models, she worked in pediatric oncology for many years before being diagnosed with cancer herself. Immunotherapy baby! No one knows how long it will last (she’s in the first cohort of 17 patients, I think she even made it into a Merck commercial). She’s doing really well. Heck, I’ll even link an article.
On Tuesday, it was tie-dye day. Vince wore the DC Martin shirt that Seth made for the first Rett Stroll-a-thon. Vince is also cooking dinner on Tuesday night.
It was cold on Monday morning, Edda wanted to join in on the purple fun, so she donned her favorite cupcake hat.
Vince was cooking dinner on Tuesday night because Jeremy took me out for date night. We had a happy hour dinner at World of Beer – and then we saw a movie about chess.
