Yesterday I found out what my radiation schedule will be. I will be having radiation daily Monday through Friday for the next 23 business days. Although a very welcome beginning, this does present challenge itself. I really am totally unable to drive. But what an awesome God we serve and what an unbelievable church family we have. A call here, a call there, and in only one hour, rides were secured for me for the entire schedule!
This afternoon I begin Physical Therapy. While PT is not generally something that people look forward to, I am quite anxious to begin. I have to be better than this. And indeed the therapists I saw were wonderful. They are kind, compassionate and helpful in developing appropriate exercises for me. They do not want me to over extend as whatever is going on, is unfortunately still going on. The incident has not abated and is getting a bit worse daily. Although there was a sudden onset, recovery will not be. Hopefully we can slow down or stop what is going on, but evidently it will take several months to recover.
As of Monday, I had a quad cane. Now they want me to have a walker. But it is one of those cool souped up models with a seat on it. My ride companions will be glad to hear this - no more carrying my heavy pocketbook.
Today as I got my physical therapy schedule those rides were also secured in record time. I have so much to be thankful for. Rallied around both me and my family are an awesome group of people who love the Lord and look for opportunities to serve Him. I thank each and everyone of them.
