Things are moving slowly along with David's preparations for radiation and drug treatments. Tuesday we hit the Saint John Regional Hospital at 10:30 and left at 4:45. We were exhausted, starved and completely overwhelmed by everything. We thought we were only going to certain things but when we got there, they all had different plans for us. Our day included another PET scan, hearing tests(because treatment can cause hearing loss), bloodwork, paperwork, having his radiation mask made, weigh-in (they want me to fatten him up and I've tried but he only gained 3 lbs in two weeks! sickening, eh, those people with the thin genes!) lol, blood pressure, IV line for PET, much running from one end of the hospital to the other! Hopefully, no more running down until he goes for his first drug injection.
I was very curious about this whole mask thing and asked the nurses if it would be okay to go in and take photos. They graciously agreed although it was the first time someone had requested to do so...wierd, huh? It's very unnerving to see your husband all laid out on this equipment having strange procedures done to him. (I think he was secretly enjoying all the female attention LOL!) Truly, the nurses were just the best!!!!
I stopped at my first yard sale of the year this morning! I stopped because I spied an old sewing machine but it turned out to be a bust...but look what I did find!!! This really cool old electric clock...I just love it...the black is all metal and it runs!! Not sure where I'll hang it up yet but for .50, I couldn't pass it up lol!
Thelma-ize this quilt! Thelma and I share a love affair with RED!! LOL!
Mary Lou lose her precious son. It's a reminder to all of us that life, no matter how difficult, is so precious. Her faith is amazing! My prayers today go out especially for you Mary Lou. Lots of hugs and prayers.....Quiltingly,
