Today is the first day of Alan's Radiation Treatment in Little Rock. Nothing has changed as for the treatment duration. It will still be 5 days a week for 5 weeks. Unless Alan is not feeling good, then he should be home every weekend. I am in Crossett this week for many different reasons, so Alan's dad and my dad are splitting the week to stay with Alan in Little Rock. I will be staying with Alan next week. It was soooo hard to say goodbye to him yesterday evening and watch him drive off. I feel guilty for not being with him this week, but unfortunately, there is only one of me. I pray that this treatment helps Alan more than hurts him. Hopefully he will not have any side effects from this, but of course it is possible. He will start an oral drug called Sutent after his radiation treatment. That too can cause side effects, so again, we will just have to wait and see. Please remember our whole family during these weeks. It's going to being difficult emotionally and physically, but not spiritually b/c our Lord will get us through this and we believe and trust in him.
Thank you so much to everyone. There are so many of you that I would really like to write thank you notes to and I'm not saying it's never going to happen, but I just don't know when it's going to be. I've been trying to make my own notes and every time I get on the computer at home, something else comes up and I get side tracked. One day, maybe it will happen..;-).
Love to All!
