« Day 38 - Best Mommy in the World Award | Main | Day 39 - Michael's Words »

March 26, 2010


If you have been following along with this blog, you will see that Michael started off with his reference to Galaxy Quest shouting out the slogan and battle cry "Never Give Up, Never Surrender".

The story of the film revolves around the premise that when you lose faith in yourself, you are lost. But magic exists, and when all seems lost Commander Taggert orders activation of the Omega 13. Like all leaders who take risks, Commander Taggert is not certain of the outcome. The Omega 13 could kill everyone, or save them all. In the face of adversity when all seems lost, he gambles his chances and issues the order. By activating the Omega 13, it gives Commander Taggert and his crew enough time to correct one mistake that will then save all their lives.

In Michael's case, it is time to activate his Omega 13. To quote Michael: "My mistake was not getting the PEG earlier, by activating the Omega 13, I am getting a second chance". He is scheduled for PEG surgery Monday morning, preceded by early morning radiation at 6:45 AM. This will be an overnight hospital stay but it will guarantee the vital delivery of calories to carry him through to the winning line.


Today's thanks: SH and SN for a wonderful yummy meal; PJ for the most efficient IV fluids run ever; Allison in Scotland for being you and being there; JP for the healing beads; Ger for the bicycle delivery!

I am sure I am forgetting someone so want to extend a huge thank you to all of you who call, email, and send positive, loving, healing vibes. We all feel your support and relish in the energy.

Never Give Up, Never Surrender!
