Day 249

Four down…One to go:
We are so excited that Sarah has completed all but one of her radiation treatments. She will finish @ 11:30 today and after that the celebration will begin. I am going to make today all about Sarah. To start with we are going to go to Pike Place Market and buy some white flowers. Sarah loves the flowers from Pike Place because they remind her of her wedding flowers. I can’t tell you the joy it brings to her to have flowers at home every day. After that, we will begin heading north. Our next stop will be Designer Shoe Warehouse at the Northgate Mall. What girl doesn’t like new shoes? Sarah definitely does and I will be getting her a pair or two to celebrate. Who knows what little fun activity we will think of next, but later on Sarah and I are going to have dinner to celebrate the end of her treatment!

This week has turned out 100% better than I ever thought it would. Staying at the hotel was a really great thing for Sarah this week. There have been some uncomfortable nights for Sarah, and even though at times she hasn’t slept real well she has made it through. Sleepless nights have now turned Sarah into the “Queen of Infomercials.” She can repeat them word for word and is very excited for our appliances at home to fail so she can go “shopping”! Overall the hotel has taken what could have been a bad week, and made it a little more bearable. However, Sarah’s skin is turning red again and her doctor warned that it could continue to get a little worse over this next week. Please pray that this is not the case. We want Sarah’s skin to permanently heal and not get any worse.

Sarah and I would like to extend a huge Thank You to Dr. Kim and the SCCA Radiation team. What they do has a truly awful effect on people, but they make up for it with their kindness and great concern for your situation. I cannot imagine a better place for my wife to have gone through this final phase of her treatment. Thank You!!!

Thanks for all your prayer and support this was needed greatly and we knew we could count on you!
