A Journey of Ten Sessions...

...begins with a single session.

 Rebecca on the way to her first treatment

Rebecca on the way to her first treatment

it went well!

rebecca's energy was very prayerful and the treatment itself only lasts something like 5 minutes so we were in and out of the hospital in about a half hour.  she's bright and shiny still.  and apparently will keep her hair for another week or 10 days.

she did start to have a severe pain in her right shoulder afterwards, that our doctor thought could be tension or could be due to some growth they saw on her cranial nerve #12 whose meningeal-thingy courses down through that area. but he said if it goes away, it's probably nothing, and that if it is tumor related, that this radiation protocol would be the treatment for it.  we'll keep an eye on it.


blessings to all of you for your prayers and your faith and your words of encouragement and your candles and your pictures of candles.  they fill her heart when she sees them.

session number two and beginning the tagrisso are on the docket for tomorrow.


i'm gonna keep this brief and get us to bed.  sincere love to you all.  oh!  and please know that we're staying with friends really close to san francisco, so our commute there (if traffic is flowing well) is about 30 minutes instead of an hour and a half.  such amazing, lovely people taking us in.  it's our friends jason and riyana and their 8-month-old brigid, and they live with three other folks that don't know us half so well and everyone's welcomed us with open arms.  like, literally they've been opening their arms to hold our baby for us.

okay...back to the sincere love thing.  we have sincere love for you all.  rebecca's energy right now, after a bath and a massage from aNother lovely being, is like a watery love priestess.  i think she loves everyone at the moment. i certainly do.
