Video from Saturday

Take a few minutes to watch this great video that our friend Mr. Kiang took on Saturday. It really shows how awesome the turnout was on Saturday. Thank you for this footage, we love it! And by the way, did you know that the overall winner of the race, Jim Savage, is our cousin? How cool is that? I think his time was around 15 minutes. Wow! Way to go Jimmy! A special thanks to that side of the family who came all the way from across the sound in Hansville, WA to be there. I'm sure that was a very early morning in order t0 catch the ferry. And of course thank you to everyone else who was there and made the effort. We even had a bride (got married at 5:30 that night!) and most of her wedding party in attendance. Talk about support!

Andrew was feeling pretty good all day but has been very uncomfortable and in pain this evening. The fluid build-up in his legs, feet and abdomen cause pain and he often will feel dizzy, bloated and lots of pressure. He was able to drain off some fluid yesterday by himself, so that brought some relief. Andrew is scheduled to start treatment at the Integrated Health Clinic in Fort Langley, BC on Wednesday. He will leave tomorrow to head up there. Click here to read more about the clinic. He is slated to receive treatment for 4 weeks, but we will take it 1 day at a time and see how he feels. We found accommodations for him just a few minutes from the clinic in Fort Langley.

I will continue to keep you posted!
