I've had a 4 day break from radiation because the treatment folks took a long weekend. They certainly deserve it. Their days seem very intensely filled with serving those of us who are in need of their care. God bless them all.
My next chemo treatment - #2 - is tomorrow morning. They have scheduled me for some follow up saline infusions on Thursday and Friday...this because my wonderful wife's intuition after chemo #1 convinced our chemo oncologist that I had become dehydrated. Based on her observation he, without batting an eye, scheduled them On a side note, the medical statistics show that married men have a 4 times greater cancer treatment recovery history than single guys! I am so lucky to have Deanna in my corner.
The radiation starts up again today (Monday) and I'll be receiving treatments 5 days each week for the next 4 weeks. That said, I continue to focus on keeping my head in a one day at a time frame - "Why worry about tomorrow? It will have it's own worries."
By-the-way, in regard to Deanna's last post. While I'm wearing the radiation mask I am pretty much continually talking to God, asking Him to guide the molecules to destroy the cancer and avoid the good cells. Oh, and they've been playing Alison krause and other inspirational type of music while I'm pinned there. If anyone ever had the voice of an angel, I think she is the one.
Please remember to pray for us and the wonderful Drs. and techs.at UCSD. Surely God is with us!
Onward and forward!
