Day 44!!!!

June 30th, 2005

My last treatment is over! It is finished! By the time you read this we will be on the road to Colorado! Everything went well this morning. They were a little behind in Gantry 3 because of some problem with the X-ray but they fixed that and at 7:05 AM I received my last Proton […]

Day 41

June 28th, 2005

Count down! 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3 to go! I have looked forward to this week for several months. Now that it is here, what keeps me going are the prayers of family and friends. It is hard to describe the feeling I have because the treatments do not hurt, but there […]

The LAST weekend and Day 40

June 27th, 2005

This was a weekend to relax. After two treatments Friday, I think I was extra tired and I had much more difficulty sleeping Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night. But, that’s OK; the doctor said Thursday that this would rectify itself in three to four weeks after the treatment is complete. So, I will look forward […]

Day 38/39

June 25th, 2005

God is good! I don’t know why I say that. Maybe it is to affim it in my own mind. Certainly I need that truth affirmed. I say I believe it, but at times I find myself acting in disbelief! Kay and I just finished a book Your God is Too Safe by Mark Buchanan […]

Day 37

June 23rd, 2005

This should be day 38! I went in for a treatment yesterday morning and the x-ray machine in Gantry 3 was down. That meant that they could not check the allignment of the patient so they couldn’t do proton treatments. Since Thomas, Austin, and Jackson were here, we had reservations at 10:00 AM on the […]

Day 35

June 20th, 2005

After today’s treatment I am in “single digits!” Only nine more treatments to go! Kay and I left for Oklahoma City last Friday at 11:45 AM. We arrived tired but without any problems at 6:00 PM. Friday evening we had “catch up” things to do at the house. Saturday we arrived at Frontier City for […]

Day 34

June 17th, 2005

Day 34! Only ten treatments left. When this started, I thought nine weeks in California would be just shy of eternity! But, the time has absolutely flown by. You would think that when all you have to do is get a proton treatment weekdays at 6:45 AM, you would have lots of time on your […]

Day 29

June 10th, 2005

Three weeks left! If I were in Marine Boot Camp at San Diego (as I was in 1961), we would be allowed to “blouse” our dungaree trouser legs at the top of our boots! That is the ultimate sign that you are in the last few weeks of boot camp! Everyone then knows that you […]

Day 28

June 9th, 2005

I cannot believe that I received my 28th treatment this morning! And, I can hardly believe that I have not blogged since Day 25! This has been an incredible week! We have had a LOT of fun! David, David, Jr., and Lauren arrived last Monday at 1 PM. We enjoyed each others company Monday evening […]

Weekend – Again!

June 4th, 2005

I cannot believe how the time has flown by! We have now completed 24 treatments and have only 20 left! The Lord is good! For anyone that has ever been in the military, I am now a “short timer!” Less than a month to go. If I were in the service, I would have a […]
