Finished radiation today. Hurray!! It was cute the radiation office always plays calming music while I go through the therapy, but today, they played Lionel Richie’s “Celebrate Good Times,” and then gave me a certificate and bottle of sparkling cider.
We met with Dr Rich, the oncologist, and his clinical trial nurse today. We have to wait 28 days after radiation to start the clinical trial, and an important element is that the brain is clear. I can’t start the trial until the brain is clear. I will get an MRI to check the brain on August 27. Am I too bold to ask everyone to please join our family in praying for the miracle of a clear brain scan? Then we’ll be able to get started soon after the 27th of August.
My sister Michelle, her husband Richard, and her two boys Gray and Tanner arrived from AZ today. My sister Heidi and her family will arrive late tonight. Everyone will go swimming with me tonight for my physical therapy.
Today my quote comes from the book the young women gave me. “Fear not I am with thee. Oh, be not dismayed. For I am thy God and will still give thee aid. I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand, upheld by my righteous omnipotent hand.”
Love it!!! He is causing me to stand–literally. I have such faith in a loving Father in Heaven and in the redeeming power of the Savior. I feel their omnipotent hand daily.
Love to all. Thanks for sticking with me….Melanie
