Weekly Luc Update - Day 184 - 31 May 2011

Luc has been doing fairly well over the last week, periodic headaches and nausea. Over all, even with low energy levels he has managed to function very well, he squeezed in as much schooling as teaching time allowed last week. By Thursday afternoon he was feeling well enough to go to Vancouver on Friday for Tristan's Fastball tournament in Richmond. I had originally been preparing for Noah and I to stay home with him in case he wasn't well enough, so this revelation was great news for Tristan and Dana that we would be there as a family. That same Thursday night as I was about to send out an email, Captain Michel Chaisson from Air Canada emailed enquiring how Luc was doing. I emailed him back and long and short of it, he flew back from Shanghai on Friday and had us at Air Canada's Vancouver Airport Flight Simulator on the Saturday Afternoon.

Luc, Noah and myself met Michel, we got the tour of the center and then all three of us got the opportunity to do two take offs, one auto-pilot landing and one manual landing each in the Boeing 767 Full motion Flight Simulator that Air Canada Pilots use. As a bonus, we were also able to get in the Airbus A 330 Simulator as well, the entire experience was the most amazing experience for all three of us. A huge Thank you to Capt. Chaisson, Air Canada and Ronald McDonald House (who thought so highly of us to pass this experience onto us) all of you made such a lasting memory for us.

We still managed to see two of Tristan's games and Dana was at all four, it was a fantastic weekend for all five of us until Sunday morning when Noah woke sick. Upon arrival back in Victoria Dana took Noah to the clinic and he has been isolated to his bedroom since awaiting test results to come back. We received Luc's full 64 day treatment schedule today that starts on the 8th, definitely an interesting two months coming up, should be interesting to say the least.

Anyway, thanks to all of you for continuing to follow along on Luc's journey and all of the prayers and support, we truly appreciate everything.
