Weekend – Again!

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 calendar hanging up in plain view of all and the first thing I would do each morning would be to cross off one more day!

Kay and I have been learning not to “just get along,” but to help, support, and encourage one another 24/7. It has been fun. You would think that after 42 years together we would have that all worked out. :-) But you can always learn more about one another. I am glad she is my best friend as well as my wife!

We have been really encouraged by the flowers, cards, and emails we have received. Everyone is so good to us! I almost feel like we are on vacation! The temperature is perfect, the flowers and trees are beautiful, and Kay’s cooking is delicious! I have to remind myself every once in a while that I have cancer!

The side effects continue to be minimal and controlable. One side effect has been getting up about every hour all night long. That has probably contributed to the tiredness I have experienced! Apparenty the radiation to the prostate causes irritation and inflamation. This week we increased my Flomax to three pills a day and I started taking two Ibuprofen twice a day. Results? For the last three nights I have only been up once or twice! I had forgotten what it meant to sleep all night! As an added bonus, I am not nearly as tired during the day!

I received some pictures of the new Kimray building under construction in OKC. I will post a couple of them. The building fronts on Sante Fe on the East, runs along the alley on the South, and ties in to the old RJ’s Cafe on the North. The new building will be used for Kimray Sales and Service-Oklahoma/Kansas, and RJ’s Cafe will be used for Customer Service. We really need the space and I know that everyone at Kimray is excited about getting it completed

Kimray Sales & Service – OK/KS

This is a relaxing weekend. We have nothing special planned and no visitors. We are going to drive about 76 miles to go to Grace Community Church in Sun Valley Sunday. John MacArthur is the pastor there. We are looking forward to that. Then David, David, Jr., and Lauren arrive Monday and will be here until Thursday noon. We are excited to be able to spend some time with them!We miss all of you terribly and look forward to seeing you soon!

The Lord bless you and keep you:
The Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious unto you:
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.”
Numbers 6:24-26
