    Dyanne has been in good shape. And on Friday she passed an exam required to become a teacher (part of PPU course that she is doing). One more exam (on 25th May) and she will be a qualified teacher!

    Week 36 in the war on cancer. It has been an interesting week. Some highlights:

    -On Monday we got the results of a gene test both Dyanne and I have done with 23andme. The gene test is based on saliva, meaning that the mutations found are in every cell in the body, as opposed to genetic testing done on cancer tissue which finds genetic changes that are specific to some or all cancer cells. Apart from finding out that Dyanne is an "Asian Flusher", i.e. a person that is turns red when drinking alcohol, we also found out Dyanne's genes dictate that she has dry earwax and no body odour. On my side, I am the happy owner of two copies of APOE4 which means I have something like 11x the chance of getting Alzheimer. So once we are done with finding a cure for lung cancer, I will be motivated to find a cure for Alzheimers as well. If I remember, that is...
