Radiation Coming Up

Hey Folks...

I'm just goin' for it... 

Harv's radiation begins next Wednesday, Feb. 18th. He will have 10 sessions of radiation. Sessions are only Monday - Friday. So... if any of you are interested in spending a little time with Harvey, there are at least six opportunities available. :-)

The session begins at 10:20 and they say that it lasts about 20 minutes. I believe we should just round way up and think of it as an hour (just in case). He'll most likely need to leave here at 8:20 to add a little cushion in case there's some traffic. HOV will be available 'cause there will be at least two people in the car, so there's that bonus!   

We were told that the side effects will be minimal, but he could experience fatigue and possibly some nausea. So, if you're uncomfortable with the possibility of nausea, you might want to sit this one out. He'll have some anti-nausea meds so it's unlikely that it will be a major issue. 

I'll list the dates that are available and if you'd like to spend time with Harv (I'll be staying at home on days when others are driving), just let us know. We can make things work either way, but if you're available and interested, that'd be great. 

Wed. Feb. 18 -- Carrie
Thurs. Feb. 19 -- Carrie
Fri.   Feb. 20 -- Roger
Mon. Feb. 23 -- Chris & Brad
Tues. Feb. 24 -- Melissa & Leigh 
Wed. Feb. 25 -- Celeste
Thurs. Feb. 26 -- Erika
Fri. Feb. 27 -- Doug & Laurie
Mon. Mar. 2 -- Teri
Tues. Mar. 3 -- Gini
Wed. Mar. 4 -- Carrie

Thank you for all the love... All the little pieces of our friendship puzzle make a beautiful picture.

Have a happy day!
