This week

Tomorrow is Friday. In astrology Friday is connected with the planet Venus. This associates Friday with love, peace, and relaxation. Dan gets a free day with no visit to MVH tomorrow. It may be due to the new machine delivery.

So, as of today the count is 6 down, 37 to go.

We are looking forward to the weekend. We'll be buying 3 new outdoor lamps for our house. We have 2 front porches and 1 back door that have lights. They all need replacing! Electrician is scheduled for December 11. I'd love to put about 3 on the garage, too, but those will have to wait. The economy, you know.... We also have a Christmas Brunch to attend on Sunday afternoon.

Do you have weekend plans?

Remember, if you get there, ignore the hole in my sock :)

Here we go

Today is Day Three. Only Forty more to go.
Dan is undergoing radiation treatments for prostate cancer. He chose this method of treatment rather than go under the knife. Current literature provides data that rad treatments are just as effective as surgery -- sometimes more so.

Dan has been through cancer treatment before, so he's no newbie to all of this. We are a bit wiser with respect to holding our own against the "medical system". It's not easy. People need advocates and need to be advocates as well to make sure they get the right treatment at the right time.
