Here we go...

Happy to report that Pake completed the preliminary work for radiation today. The staff is very kind and his nurses are stellar. He walked in and out, with a smile on his face. Today's highligh was getting to choose the Pandora music, "2000 something Country" (I'll keep my opinion on that to myself :) 

He'll be here once a day, starting next week. It's going to be a long 6 week haul, but we all agree that it is better than surgery. He's had enough of that to last for a long, long time. 

I'm super proud of Pake's positive approach. Not one time has he felt sorry for himself or complained. What an inspiration he is! 

Everything is better with {old} Country Music!

  1. Good luck I am sure he will breeze through this. Lee just just completd 6 weeks of radiation without too many complaints. He did his in No Platte and they were all wonderful. I hope it worked, we wont know for a couple more weeks.I will be praying for you.

    1. Thank you Marie! We appreciate the support and prayers. I'm so glad to hear that Lee completed his treatments. So nice to hear from you!

  2. Oh,how I love Pake's smile! Another turn in the road. As you have written in this post and the previous, there is much to appreciate. There is a lot of fun to be had in Omaha! I hope Pake will fly through the treatments with no side effects! Loves & Hugs!

    1. Thanks so much, Lucy! I can feel your smile, love and support from here. Yes, we are going to find things to keep both of our minds busy! He's taking up golf so that will be a FUN challenge! He also has a favorite ice cream spot that he's excited to be visiting :) Great to hear from you, much love xoxoxo
