So Far, So Good
Today was Gorman’s third day of chemoradiation and he’s feeling fine. This “state-of-the-art” radiation machine has reduced the treatment time to just 15 minutes and he says it’s not nearly as uncomfortable as a MRI. So far, no nausea from the Timadar. In fact, he omitted the Phenergan pill (anti-nausea) last night and still felt just fine. Of course, he may need it as time goes on but for now it doesn’t seem necessary.
We have not been to a Sunday morning church service since Gorman’s surgery. We’re not sure we could sit still that long nor focus but our church, St. James Episcopal, has a healing service every Thursday morning and we’ve attended that each week. It has been such a blessing. After communion, our priest places his hands on our heads, praying for healing, and anoints our forehead with oil. For hours afterwards, we can get a whiff of the scent of cloves, reminding us of that healing prayer and it’s so comforting.
