Mike went this morning to be fitted for his radiation mask. He will have to explain the process... I could only go so far to hear instructions and then I had to go to the waiting room. It only took about 15 minutes. Now the radiation and chemo have to be figured out and the technician said it would then be 7 to 10 days before the treatments actually start. It is funny the new things one becomes anxious about... We are anxious to get the treatments started.
The center is full of all kinds of people, old and young, big and little, bald and hairy, rich and poor. We feel like we fit in with everyone. We are striving to be cheerful as we encounter others. It is obvious that cancer can strike anyone at anytime. We are grateful for optimism. That seems to abound at the center!
We saw a couple of people we know at the cancer center this morning. Again it was so nice to see familiar faces. I honestly don't think Mike can go anywhere without seeing someone he knows. If he doesn't know a person, he can somehow make a connection with someone he does know.
Mike will go to a client meeting this afternoon with Andy and then he has an event this evening where his business will receive an award for Historic Preservation. He is so surprised and pleased about this. He told the fellow who informed him about the award that he hoped it wasn't a "sympathy vote!" I am sure GEA is worthy of the award.
We are facing another beautiful day... I just looked up and saw a book on our shelf that is entitled "14,000 Things to be Happy About." I'll not list 14,000 things, but today I will share one - I am happy that each of you are in our lives!
