Glad to see that young Dale Inouye continues to recover from his marrow transplant, 67 days after his procedure.
Each time I read Dale’s blog I feel humbled by the good fight young Dale is fighting, and the unconditional love of parents for their children…
Dale continues to do well. His labs this week are still good.
Dale is still very committed to his school work. Derek often complains that Dale hardly spends time with him because he is always at his desk studying. So we ask Dale to take a break and play with Derek.
Derek on the other hand has to be reminded to stop playing and do his homework.
Also last week, Coach Harvey Kitani (head coach of the State Champion Fairfax Lions) presented Dale with a Nike basketball signed by UCLA’s head coach Ben Howland and the UCLA Bruin basetball team. It was very exciting.
They also wrote ” For Dale Inouye” “From the UCLA Bruins” Having watched every UCLA game from his hospital room, and reading the “Daily Bruin” (UCLA’s newspaper) , Dale recognized most of the players names and their numbers.
Some of the signatures were difficult for Dale to read so Danny ready them to him. Danny and Derek were equally ecstatic.
I’m sure the 2007 March Madness and UCLA’s journey to the final four will be an ever lasting memory for Dale.
A big thank you to all of you who continue to follow Dale’s progress through our blog and for your continued prayers and support. Grace and peace to you always….
