Monday was my 3rd radiation treatment, and I’m happy to report that it involved notably less back pain than the first two.
I’ve been falling asleep very easily lately. I don’t know if it is the pain medications, or my general lack of sleep (or both!). I started sleeping in the rocking chair, switched to the recliner we borrowed from Grandma, but then discovered by accident that I actually sleep better at the dinner table. I put my pillow where my plate would be, and I could sleep for much longer periods than in the recliner. But, how nice it was last night, the first night I slept in my bed in three weeks. I kept waking and standing up, just to make sure that I could.
I am continually amazed by the help and the offers to help, the reports and promises of prayer, the cards, letters, and emails, and other acts of kindness Diane and I have been overwhelmingly blessed with. I was talking the other day with a friend about the question, “Does God speak to you?” Wow- God has so many voices and so many hands.
I have a doctor’s appointment on Thursday. That will probably be an x-ray and possibly the bone marrow biopsy. I’ll let you know how it goes.
