Meeting With The Radiation Oncologist and Roland And Louise Visit

DeBary, FL.

62 deg. mostly cloudy, NE wind @ 2 mph.
Forecast = High temp. 72 deg. mostly cloudy, E. wind @ 15 mph.

Friday, Jim and Linda headed over to the Florida Hospital in Orange City for Linda's appointment with the Radiation Oncologist. This was an informational meeting where a nurse and then the doctor explained the Radiation Therapy procedure and then answered questions that Linda and Jim had.

Linda and Jim both learned a lot about Radiation Therapy and by about noon, CLT was taking them to the 4 B's restaurant here in DeBary. There, they had meals, ( Linda had breakfast for lunch and Jim had the Crab Cakes). They said that both meals were very good, and Jim especially enjoyed the clam chowder soup that came with his meal. ;-)

Yesterday morning, Louise and Roland called Linda and said that they were in Orlando at a phone store and if Linda and Jim weren't busy, they'd stop by for awhile in the afternoon. Both Jim and Linda thought that was a great idea and told them to come on over.

So,  ,  ,  by early afternoon, Roland and Louise were pulling into the driveway. ; -)

The afternoon was spent visiting and catching up on what all has happened since Linda's surgery. Then about 4:00 Linda called Gentili's Pizza and ordered a pizza for pick-up.

After a very nice meal with very good friends, Roland and Louise decided that they needed to head back home. It's at least a 2 hour drive from here to Frostpoof so even though it was about 5:00 when they left, I'm sure it was after 7:00 by the time they got home.

It sure was good to see them again. Lately, it seems like there's always something going on that makes it difficult to get together with them. :-(  Hopefully, Jim and Linda will be able to see them a couple times this winter or next summer.

A Point to Ponder : To handle yourself, use your head. To handle others use your heart.
