Day 11

May 16th, 2005

Today I had my 11th treatment. Everything seems to be going well! After my treatment I talked to another patient that was really upset. He is a dentist and about half way through his treatments. He had been with a friend this weekend that had a RPP two years ago and still has problems. He […]

Another “fun” day with the McCormicks. We went to Big Bear Lake. Here are some more pictures. We stopped for a picnic lunch beside the lake. The temperature was about 70 degrees compared to 92 degrees at the apartment. Big Bear Lake was beautiful! We drove all the way around it. What fun! We had […]

Today was a “fun” day with the McCormicks. Thought I would just post some pictures. We started with a hike up the mountains. This is a look back at the apartments. This is a view of the Loma Linda Univesity Medical Center. Next we went to The Cottage at Laguna Beach for brunch. Tom & […]

Day 10

May 13th, 2005

As I drove to LLUMC this morning, I thought, “What a beautiful day! This is another good reason to have a 6:45 AM time slot!” The sun was coming up behind the mountains and the sky was streaked with multiple shades of a million colors! It was incredible! Isn’t it wonderful to be alive and […]

Day 9

May 12th, 2005

Today was another busy day! I thought this time in California would be a vacation! It’s not! Kay and I are both very tired this evening. I don’t know what part of it is from the treatments (if any and what part from the schedule we have been keeping (probably all). My treatment was at […]

Day 8

May 11th, 2005

It seems that 5:45 AM comes earlier each day! None the less, we were at the hospital about 6:05 AM this morning. There is a whole new group of people to get to know, the early morning bunch. They are different from the night bunch but still a lot of fun to be around. Anyone […]

Day 7

May 10th, 2005

I slept better last night. I guess that I was a little apprehensive Sunday night about the time change for my treatment and I didn’t sleep well at all! That is a nice way of saying I was “anxious.” Of course Philippians 4:6-7 says, Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer […]

Day 6

May 9th, 2005

My treatment today was at 6:45 AM. There was no receptionist and we each just went back when we thought it was time. Things seemed to work OK without her! At first the tech said that my treatment tomorrow would be at 11:45 AM. After my treatment he returned and said that 6:45 AM would […]

Day 5

May 7th, 2005

Today is Saturday. Since Loma Linda University Medical Center is a Seventh Day Adventist hospital, optional services (library, gym, some stores) shut down about 4:00 PM Friday and reopen Sunday. As a matter of fact, since this is a SDA community, they don’t deliver mail on Saturday but they do on Sunday! SDA’s are vegetarians […]

Day 4

May 5th, 2005

It was a cooler, overcast day so Kay and I decided to climb the hills/mountains behind our apartment complex. It appears to be a preserve of some kind and there are lots of trails where motorbikes and 4-wheelers have been. The grass and weeds ate about waist high or more on either side of the […]
