Treatment - Week #4

This is Tuesday of week four.  16 radiation sessions completed and 4 chemotherapy infusions done!!  I thought it might be nice for you to see a few more people that have been providing such loving care to Mom.

Beth (radiation therapist) with Mom yesterday
Dr. Knister feels Mom is doing very well with her radiation treatment.  Her complaints are not serious and those that she has, she is dealing with them with her typical strength and courage.  Beth has been so wonderful with Mom each day.  She has become Mom's "daily" friend, as the radiation technician everyday.

Following radiation, we went on to chemotherapy.  She has had three nurses; Ula, Mary and Robbie.  Today, Robbie is taking care of Mom.  They have all been so kind!

Today was also a day to share her HEART pins that she has been working on.  Mom's presence can be known just by the appearance of those special sequined pins!!!

Have a great day,


  1. Hi Grandma,
    The kids at school told me it was too early to wear my heart pin. They said I have to wait until February...so, I'm not wearing it yet.

    Can't believe you're already done with 4 weeks! You look great and it sounds like the routine is becoming a little bit more familiar. Keep up the great work! You really are an inspiration.

    Love, Kim

  2. I am so pleased that you are doing so well. Keep up the good work. You are sure a loved lady' Lore
