Bright and Peaceful

It's a sunny morning; it's an open the windows morning; it's a fall sky morning; it's a Gathering Day morning. In a word - it's a perfect morning. I've read the paper, listened to Harry's chosen TV program while I balanced my checkbook for this month, and had a conversation with kitty. Let the games begin!!

As you can surmise by reading the above paragraph, I'm in a good mood and ready for this day.

I've been processed and ready for radiation to begin on Wednesday. I didn't realize how much prep is necessary for this stage of treatment. I've been marked, taped, had a small tattoo, and a mold made to place me in the same position for each and every treatment. I've been invited to accept a free makeover to give my morale a boost. Not that my morale needs a boost. Harry and I have no hesitation or apprehension about the next seven weeks. It's on with the show. I have a long reading list and intend to spend my down time reading - trips to the downtown library will be my big adventure.

I wish that I had something exciting to write about but I don't. Give us a bit of time we'll try to fix that issue. I haven't forgotten that I'm holding Harry's IOU for a trip. . . . . now let me think . . . . .hmmmmmmmm . . . . . I'll get back to you on that one.

Later, friends. Meantime enjoy every minute. Find many occasions to laugh if only just for the joy of laughing.

You have a great attitude going into this, Mary, and with all the love and prayers surrounding you I just know you'll do ok. I can't help but reflect on how God gave you Harry at just the right time in your life, and I know his help and caring in such a blessing to you. Check in when you can and let us know how everything is proceeding. When you are ready to cash in that trip IOU there will be plenty of reason to celebrate!

Sunday sounded like a perfect day. My kind of day. It's been a while since we've been able to open the windows, but that day is coming.

I love your attitude and I know you're going to be just fine. I'll be interested in hearing about your books, and also what radiation is like.

You'll be in my thoughts!
