Finally a start date!!!

Thursday, August 04, 2011

We received a call this afternoon and Jeff will start the chemo and radiation on Monday the eighth.. It seems as though it has been a long time coming. It was four months ago that he was diagnosed. I praise the Lord that the show is finally gtting on the road. No journey ever starts with out going th first mile. We took a long time geting that first mile done, but now we are ready to begin the rest of the journey.
I have kept busy again today. I finished scraping the garage floor, painted the ceiling, and took a brightwhite paint and did around the door coming into the huse. It looked so good that it made the door look dingy, so I painted the door also. The trim and the doorhave only the first coats on them, but I qut out there for the day. Need to get a little done here in the house. Did fix Jeff a good dinner. I fixed rice and chicken and mushroom soup. The chicken I had to shred up pretty fine, but he said it all tasted good. I didn't eat because I had eaten two great big pieces of cantaloupe earlier and I am not hungry. I am more thirsty than usual. That is probably due to the fact that I turned of the air today and opened the house up to the fresh air. Did get little toasty this afternoon and had to close the big door in the garage so I was doing a lot of sweating.
That is it folks. I thank you all for being there. You will never know how very grateful I am for eachand everyone of you.
May the Lord bless and keep you safe.
God bless

    Wishing you and Jeff all the best for Monday. I hope he is in good spirits. I was certainly scared before I started chemo.

It sounds like you've been busy! I'm not very good at painting. I hope you make some time for relaxation. Have a wonderful weekend! Please let me know if you need anything or if you want/need to talk. emoticon

    Wonderful about Jeff finally having a date to start therapy. And you are getting so much accomplished! Had a big piece of cantaloupe, too, and it filled me up so I did not overeat on supper. A big Woo Hoo for us both! Sending a big hug. God bless and protect you. Jeanette

    Glad you have a date and a plan. As usual you got so much done. Had to laugh about your door looking dingy comment...that is what happens to be me too when making improvements, one just leads to another. Hugs!
