Mike had his first radiation treatment this morning and all went very, very well. Again, we are so pleased with the care we are receiving at the Cancer Center at BMH. Mike was told this morning that he has won half of the battle because of his optimism!
We met with the nurse practicioner at 11:00 and she is WONDERFUL! She says that most of Mike's side effects, i.e. eye strain, trembling hands, etc. are due to the steroid, not the surgery. We are on a taper and can't wait for that to end. Things are so much better though that we really can't complain. She indicated that Mike could work as much as he felt like. The surgeon is still in charge of the driving schedule...which right now is only in town.
For a huge birthday present, we had our house professionally cleaned today. I couldn't be happier. Everything smells so clean and wonderful. I think that will give both of us a new lease on life. Understand, we keep a pretty clean house, but this is amazing!
We have been blessed beyond measure. Thanks again to everyone!
