I think I need to make a correction.... Yesterday, I posted Day 23.  It is Day 23 when I count backwards.  (28,27,26) It was really Day 6 of Radiation Treatments.  Does that clear things up or completely confuse our readers??? I will in the future, continue chronologically. Today being Day 7 of 28.

Today is a good day. We got this amazing ointment called "Emu Oil." (From Emu's) When Tom applies a little Aloe Vera and drops of that Emu on the area that is being radiated, he can put a shirt on.  Last week, before the oil,  he couldn't tolerate a simple cotton t-shirt.  We are so thankful.  Emu oil it sounds a little Dr. Suessical

My love to you all.  It is a gorgeous day that the Lord has allowed us. Hope you can get outside and enjoy!!! It reminds me of a saying that my friend Karen always sings to me,  Remember,
" A day without Radiation is a day without Sunshine."  I think that is one of those inside Cancer jokes... and my beloved friend Karen would know that world very well.  God Bless you.

We are very excited for our friends that are going to Cal City this weekend.  Lord willing, we will join you on the next trip.  Boys, don't do anything Tom wouldn't do.  Mostly because he doesn't want to miss out on anything.

Hugs and sincere devotion to you. May Christ shine through you like a beacon today!
