2 More To Go and Rescheduled

DeBary, FL.

58 deg. Mostly cloudy, NW wind @ 10 mph.
Forecast = Some clouds this morning will give way to generally sunny skies for the afternoon. High 76F. Winds WNW at 10 to 15 mph.

Linda had her Radiation treatment yesterday morning. Being that they were saying that the whole procedure could take as long as 3 hours, Laura went along to keep Linda and Jim company while waiting.

This procedure is more complicated because Linda has to get a scan each time, Dr. Graham, (Linda's radiation doctor), then decides exactly where the treatment should be applied, and then she is taken in and the treatment is preformed. This treatment is very concentrated and takes about 10 or 15 minutes, once everything is set up.

She will have 2 more of these treatments, one on Friday and the final one next Tuesday. After the 3rd one, she will be done with all the radiation treatments.

Then in a week or so will resume Chemo treatments.:-(

Linda said that the treatment wasn't too bad, but last night she did have an uncomfortable sensation in her lower abdomen.

Being that the next radiation treatment will be on Friday, (the day they were supposed to pick up the new travel trailer from LaMesa RV), Jim called the service adviser yesterday afternoon and rescheduled. Now, they'll be picking the trailer up next Monday instead.

It was sure nice of Laura to take one of her days off to go along yesterday. It made the time pass so much quicker.

Thanks Laura!!!! ;-)

No big plans for today or tomorrow. A lot will depend on how Linda is feeling.

Did you know that April is "National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Month?"

  1. Hoping the rest of the radiation treatments go as easily as that one did. Chemo will be done before you know it, and maybe a trip in the new trailer! My Dad's dizziness has subsided finally, and his hair is growing back, pure white this time :)
