Wild Wednesday
Thursday, April 25, 2013      1 comments

I believe my camera/computer problem has been solved (not by me, but who cares as long as it's solved?) So, here are some of the pictures I have been meaning to post. This one is the view from our room at Ronald McDonald House. There are ... Read more
Terrific Tuesday
Wednesday, April 24, 2013      1 comments

Taking an idea from Blitzen40 for blog titles - though I probably can't keep it up as long as she has. Tuesday was a huge improvement on Monday. For one thing, we didn't have to get up early. I was able to take a leisurely shower, which a... Read more
Murphy's Monday
Wednesday, April 24, 2013      2 comments

I had planned to add some pictures to my next blog post, but I am using my own computer, which, after being repaired, stopped (apparently) being compatible with my point-and-shoot digital camera. And when I took it back to the guy who fixed it,... Read more
At Ronald McDonald House
Monday, April 22, 2013      2 comments

I honestly hadn't planned on staying at the Ronald McDonald House while we are here for Danny's cancer treatments. Since his insurance is reimbursing our expenses, including lodging (up to about $110 per day), I thought it would be a bit unethi... Read more
Finally Home Again
Saturday, April 20, 2013      1 comments

After a very long five days of proton-beam radiation treatments, today was the end of the first week (out of six). Although it was a pain to load all of our stuff into the car, it was wonderful to think that we were finally getting to go home! ... Read more
Treatment day three
Wednesday, April 17, 2013      1 comments

We had another relatively calm day. Again Danny did throw up, this time his breakfast, but he felt better by the time we had to go to MD Anderson, first to get a chest x-ray (to verify that his medi-port works correctly), and then for his regul... Read more
I got what I wanted!
Tuesday, April 16, 2013      1 comments

All I wanted today was for Danny's treatment to go smoothly, with no more problems, conflicts, lack of information, etc. And I got it. There were some less than wonderful things - like Danny's throwing up his lunch - but I am pretty sure it wa... Read more

I forgot to add Danny's comment about his treatment - "Very, very long and boring!"... Read more
First day of radiation therapy (long)
Monday, April 15, 2013      5 comments

Today was a big day for Danny, and for me. It was the first day of his proton-beam radiation treatment. Around here, nothing is ever, ever simple. First of all, we are dealing with not one, but two hospitals (sources of different scans and ot... Read more
I Reeeeeeeally Outdid Myself
Monday, April 15, 2013      4 comments

Today, for the VERY FIRST TIME...I managed to destroy an entire freezer full of food. Someone (of course it wasn't I; I definitely blame the Little Man Who Wasn't There, who was totally responsible for every disaster of my childhood - he has co... Read more
Very Full Day
Saturday, April 13, 2013      1 comments

It has been a very long day. Three appointments! I think that is a record for Danny so far. The first was a physical therapy appointment. Danny was in a clowning around mood, so he didn't get a whole lot accomplished, but his therapist did m... Read more

Wow, I have really let things slide. I am just so unbelievably busy these days that I don't seem to have any control over anything. It is a horrible feeling - to feel that you have no control of your own life! A lot of the problem is th... Read more
Dateline: Houston
Monday, April 08, 2013      2 comments

I only wish, with that kind of title, that I could post something exciting about a NASA mission or something. Instead, here we are settled in an 'economy' motel, which translated means cheap, in more ways than one. Oh, well, I am cheap, mostly... Read more
Mostly Good News
Saturday, April 06, 2013      2 comments

Today was a bit of a red-letter day in that Danny stopped using his walker. His original idea was to surprise his dad by using it at the hospital (where he had two more appointments today) and then discarding it, along the lines of a cripple th... Read more
More appointments
Friday, April 05, 2013      1 comments

Today Danny had a physical-therapy evaluation in the morning, and an appointment with his neurosurgeon in the afternoon. The therapist noticed some weakness on his left side, and also some balance issues and other muscle weaknesses. She has a ... Read more
