Good news on the radon test. It came back at 1.5. Levels over 4 are high, so I our home is ok. Peace of mind.
Many more blessings today. Grandma Kau took Kawena shopping and spoiled her with school shoes, and me with lots of Costco yummy food and a recipe for a great “radiation muscle weakness bath.” Thanks also to Phyllis Rosen and Alecia Raymond for spending time with me. Alecia helped me exchange some running shoes for the correct size–thanks to my wonderful Bishop and Julie Smith.
Scripture comes from Kristi Agle’s lesson on sunday and is from the Book of Mormon.
“And if ye do always remember me, ye shall have my Spirit to be with you.” 3 Nephi 18:7
Tomorrow is my follow-up appointment with the thoracic surgeon, but I am healing up just great from the operation and my lung feels much better!! –No more fluid build up! I’ll get an xray tomorrow, and I’m thinking things will look good–gonna get those running lungs back!!
We meet with the oncologist, Nathan Rich, on Thursday–same day radiation ends– to put a treatment plan together for the clinical trial. I’m excited!!
OK, this is really sentimental, so if you don’t like that kind of stuff…stop reading now…you have the facts. But I just need to record this wonderful therapy session I had with my darling husband. Background– Jon and I met when we were 15 in Philadelphia when Stake Activities and dances were the only time we got to see each other. We spent our 15-17 year old selves waiting for Stake Activities and dances. Of course, once we were 16 we dated some, but we still loved those dances!!! A while ago Jon bought A Paul Davis CD–old seventies music that they still played for slow dances in the eighties. Jon put together 4 songs PAul Davis–“Sweet Life,” “I go Crazy,” “Do right” and Lonestar’s “Amazed” He danced with me in the kitchen, and it made me feel like I was 15 again at those Stake dances!! It was the most wonderful healing therapy. We realized that was 30 years ago we danced to those songs. Thirty wonderful years of loving my sweetheart. Sentimental I know, but wonderful healing therapy… if you can find some favorites with your sweetheart, stop for a dance in the kitchen….you will love it.
Love and affection to all of you!!—Melanie
