Mike and I went to the cancer center this morning and got the final tweeking before the treatments begin. Mike will have his first treatment tomorrow morning at 9:20. We will then meet with the oncology nurse for the chemo briefing at 11:00. Usually the cancer center is great at making sure all of one's appointments coincide with each other. We explained that since we are only a few blocks from the hospital, two trips tomorrow won't make a big difference. They are just so accomodating there.
We met a cute older couple this morning who are both receiving treatments for different kinds of cancer. The man for lung and the woman for liver. The woman told me that they get to sit together to get their infusions. She said they had always done things together and were so happy to do this. We also saw our friend Jane and her husband this morning. It was great to see Jane now 3 weeks into the same treatment protocol that Mike will be having. She indicated she is tolerating the treatments very well. She looked great. We feel blessed that the chemo treatments are an oral medication without the same side effects as the infusions.
Mike was off to a meeting with his partner and their accountant right after his appointment. We will be going to Tipton for a 2:00 appointment with a client. I may be visiting more job sites than I want to during these next several weeks! Mike said I will get paid for mileage... I truly am starting a new job.
Yesterday was a blue day for me. I think the rain/darkness and the fact that we were basically still waiting to get going on this made the difference.
I read yesterday: "Come unto me, all that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
I am yoked again today with the Savior. I know the load will be easier to carry with Him carrying what I can't. Thanks again for your love, concern and prayers. They are what sometimes carry us through each day.
