|Well, here we are, end of this particular journey and getting ready to start the next one .|
Next Wednesday, November 25, Joe has his first appointment at The Knight Cancer Institute located in the Pavilion which is connected to Portland Adventist Hospital. At this appointment, Joe will meet his oncology Dr., Dr. Jingjing Hu, (pronounced Who),
I borrowed this picture from the Internet.
When I went to pick up the paper work today, Nicole gave me a short tour of where Joe will be getting his chemo treatments.
For the next few days, we are resting while Joe continues to heal from the surgery. They took his incision staples out today before he left the hospital. He is already eating better. He says it's the home cooked food. He rarely takes the pain pills ordered for him not because he's trying to be strong and brave, but because he has little or no pain. For that we thank the Lord. And on that note, the Lord is answering our prayers. We have peace, we feel His strength and comfort and we need it, He gives us the courage to meet each new challenge. Today was a good day and for that we are very grateful. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your prayers, your thoughts, your notes of encouragement and all the beautiful cards.The mantle on our fireplace has turned into
a place to display all the cards. Yes, the Snowy Christmas Picture is a bit early, but I found it at a Christmas bazaar sale the Hospital Volunteers were having and I bought it for Joe to enjoy from his recliner. If any of you care to use the snail mail to send notes of encouragement directly to Joe, our mailing address is P.O. Box 68207, Oak Grove, Oregon 97268
