Memorial Day Weekend

May 31st, 2005

What a weekend! The word that best describes it may be, “Whew!” Really it was a wonderful weekend, and we were able to do everything that we had planned on and more! I received my 20th treatment on Friday morning. At 12 Noon we were on our way to the Ontario Airport and off to […]

Day 20

May 27th, 2005

Received treatment 20 this morning! We saw the nutritionist and the doctor yesterday. Everything seems fine. I was told to expect some “red” spot on my hips. “Suntan” from the radiation. I also learned that the proton radiation goes right through the hip joint. That is why I have experienced some pain (mild) right in […]

Day 19

May 26th, 2005

I have always heard that “perception was reality.” My perception was that I would complete my treatments on July 11th unless I could get double treatments for one day and leave on the 8th. I have even talked to the doctors about getting five double treatments to try to leave a week early, on July […]

Day 18

May 25th, 2005

Today is a wonderful day! I started early with my treatment and then came home to get my emails and work on my computer. Well, my computer was asleep and wouldn’t wake up! After consulting with the Mac expert at Kimray (my brother Richard), I was on the phone with the Apple service center in […]

Day 17

May 24th, 2005

I started to write an entry today that says, “I don’t have anything to say today.” Now that seems silly!!!!

Day 16

May 23rd, 2005

Today was a great day! I had my usual dose of protons at 6:45 AM and then Kay and I spent 2 hours climbing the mountains behind the apartments. Then we spent about 4+ hours writing! It is good to finally get started! Last week I posted the second part of a quotation from Rick […]

My intention is to just have one posting on weekends. It would cover events during Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. We had several things on the agenda this weekend. Friday AM we had brunch with Gordon and Carrie Taylor in Diamond Bar, CA. We had a wonderful visit and would like to see them again before […]

Day 15

May 20th, 2005

Dear Family and Friends, Today I officially completed one third of my treatments. Three weeks out of nine, fifteen treatments out of forty-four. The time has really flown by. I told Kay today that if the rest of the time goes as fast as the past three weeks, we will be home in about two […]

Day 13

May 18th, 2005

Tom McCormick went with me this morning to LLUMC for my treatment. He was able to go into Gantry 3 with me and get an explanation from Renato about what was happening. I thought it might be interesting for you to get his perspective on things. I accompanied Tom to his treatment this morning. I […]

Day 12

May 17th, 2005

12/44 and I am grateful to be here and alive and able to praise and worship the Lord one more day! After my treatment this morning we jogged three miles and returned to the apartment for a conference call with Itzel Cabrera and the head of transportation for Mexico City. He wants to begin Character […]
