I am glad I had a week between appointments to understand that I need to do radiation THERAPY (had to add that word as it softens the blow). Of course, the new tumor developing in the groin from the latest surgery site makes it an easier decision along with the other tumor I found a few weeks ago. So I will begin radiation THERAPY June 4th and my 30th session will end July 16th. A great day to end as I would have been too busy for radiation on July 17th celebrating my boy’s 19th birthday! And then of course, there is our 15th year at Family Camp in lovely Frankfort shortly thereafter.
Today I received my first and only tattoos I will ever have on my body. No cool design professing my love for Richard but just 4 dots to help align my body for radiation THERAPY. The technicians seemed very kind but it is a humbling experience. I said my verses throughout the simulation, reminding me that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Who knows, after 30 sessions, I may know a lot more verses! Please keep my family and I in your prayers as we begin this part of our journey.
