What are you doing for the next 28 days?

I attained many long moments of sleep here

Monday was my 3rdradiation treatment, and I’m happy to report that it involved notably less 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.
