Full Day

Today was one heckuva busy day. Holly and I started at 0630 – we had to be out of the house by 0700 to be at Radiation Therapy before 0800. We got there and we were in and out in a jiffy. Holly took some pics and cool video of my treatment – I’ll try to get it up soon. Next, we whizzed across town for a 0930 appointment with Dr. Milani at NRH where I spent three weeks for therapy. The meeting went well and she’s impressed with my progress. We went upstairs to see all the therapists and staff that helped me get to where I am today. It was great to see them again and they were glad to see me! I promised Max I would get some pics up today, but we got home way too late. I promise I’ll get them up this week Max!

After that, we stopped at The Italian Store to pick up some tasty lunch to eat at home (I got an Italian sub and Holly got some Pizza – try the four cheese pizza, it is the best!) and then Holly went with me to Physical Therapy where we got some more great pics and videos. We then made a pit stop at the grocery store and came home again, I installed 2GB of memory in the desktop (it has been short and I needed to speed things up!) and we were off again to our church community group where I led the discussion tonight. I’d love to get all the pics and videos up tonight, but I really need to get to bed to get some rest after this extra long day.

One side note – I think the hair falling out has begun. I keep finding short dark hairs on my shirt, plate, desk… it must be the radiation doing its thing. But the doctors tell me it should just be temporary, so I’m not worried about it, but it really brings what I’m going through home to me. I need to get to bed… I’ll try to have something more tomorrow.
