October 2008


Here’s a few pics of what my daily radiation treatments look like (thanks, Justin, for the pics — click on pictures for larger images). 

(Driving chart is below, though I don’t need anyone else to sign up for any days.  Thanks everyone!)  A few side effects are starting to kick in this week, as I’m sleeping a bit more, and have finally given up on my hair (which was starting to get pretty patchy around the area of treatment).  All in all, I’m doing great, and just grateful for each of you, and for how good God’s been through this whole process.  Have a great weekend!

You people are great!  Thanks for filling up my rides calendar so quickly (even the Cancer Ctr. staff were impressed); a little thing for you is a huge help for me during a tricky time. 

My calendar is below, for reference.  No health updates at this time; I’m doing great, and almost halfway through radiation.  Way more things to be thankful for than to complain about. 

*One additional driving assingment someone could take on if they wish is if they are heading to the Zlateff/Reasoner Wedding on Sat. 11/8 (I can get myself there if needed, but it’s always more fun to go with friends).

Now on to other things… (more…)

Once again, here is my Transportation calendar (if you’re available on any of the slots that don’t have names, I’d love to be chauffered by you; please contact me by email, phone, or leave a comment below (by clicking on the title above, then leaving a reply).  We leave Lynden at 2:15, the appt. last about 5 min, and (unless otherwise noted) return by 3:40ish.  (more…)
