Day + 13 - Re Entry

So I'm actually going home ... TODAY! Day +13!

While I am of course excited and relieved and ready to land this spaceship safely back home, I'm also a little nervous about reentry into life on earth, with all its attendant "Gravity" and such.

My thanks again to the work crew who answered Julie's call - it is so nice to know that the house is well prepared for my return. I know that really gave Julie a big emotional lift to have your help.

And, I can't say enough about the staff and resources here at OHSU. I'll certainly miss my view of the lovely city and Ross Island and the Tram... but I have pictures and memories for that... and they pale in comparison to how sweet a bit of FRESH AIR will be!

Au Revoir Sky Lounge!


  1. Great news Mark!

    Enjoy those first breaths outside!


  2. You really are the rockstar of all things cancer related. Congratulations and have a soft landing. See you in two weeks.

  3. Welcome Home Superman. We are so happy, joyful elated that you are back among us earthlings. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to be part of your homecoming. A treat we didn't anticipate. Keep well. Live strong.

  4. I am so proud of both of you, Mark and Julie.
    Handling all of this with such creativity, grit, and grace. I am thrilled you are home and am sending good vibrations for full recovery. Love you all. Karen K.
