"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

The battle in Seattle...

...no, not the one you are thinking...at least not football.  Just a quick bye-the-bye to say I finished my first round of radiation.  Check, over and out.  And now I'm going to take a little rest.

Thank you for helping me to get this far...we will win, I'm sure of it!

  4. I love your attitude, Jojo. Check -- just like you've completed a task and now crossed it off your list. You've earned a rest. What do you like to do when you rest? Watch movies, read good books, talk on the phone? Whatever it is -- I hope you do a LOT of it because you deserve it! I like to rent real good tv series videos. One time I rented two seasons of "Lost" and I really loved it. It's not the typical kind of show that I thought I would like, but I sure did.

  11. You can DO it jojo, I did 25 regular ones and 5 boosts from end of September finished Nov 2nd. Not pleasant but I LOVED my techs, they made it if not enjoyable, very tolerable. It is over quicker than you think at the beginning. I can recall looking at my schedule and thinking "I'll never manage this" but as each one was crossed it I was closer to being done!
    Love you,

  13. There will be an end to all of this and you will feel so good when it's done. All of this works.... so let it do it's job.
    Get lots of rest. Drink lots of water. Buy some really wonderful smelling lotion for your skin and write out your feelings on your blog. Keep the faith.
    I'm praying for you...

  16. DEAREST JOJO,
    I just discovered you through a comment you left on my friend Debbie's, Wisteria and Roses Blog.
    I came over because I thought from the comment that you had a child die...My daughter Amy died 15 months a go after winning her battle with cancer. We have prayed and fought for her life since she was first diagnosed with cancer at 10 1/2 years old. The Lord graciously allowed us to have her until she was 33 years old...I still grieve her at times and will probably always will....
    NOW I READ YOU HAVE FINISHED YOUR first round of radiation....my dear friend you will be put on my prayer list and you will fervently be prayed for.
    I sure want to stay in touch with you and please feel free to email me at any time....I would love to be a friend to you through this trial.
    If you visit my blog you will see Amy's name on the butterfly wings of the dress mannequin...my profile picture is of an art project she made for me. It gives me joy to see it.
    I AGREE WITH THE YEAR OF EMBRACE....I was so grieved the last 15 months that Amy has been in heaven ...not that she is in heaven but that I am selfish and want her with me....I told Jesus he must take my grief away....He just spoke in my spirit...KEEP SPRING ALIVE IN YOUR HEART...every time you are drawn back to the cold barren place....think of the beauty and warmth of Spring.
    EMBRACE EVERY DAY JOJO....EACH DAY IS ALL ANY OF US HAVE AND NOT WASTE ONE PRETTY MOMENT ON TOMORROW FOR GOD IS ALREADY THERE.
    HUGS
