|Getting ready to go another round|
|Terri, my companion on this journey|
I am lucky enough to have another corner room with a beautiful view of the surrounding neighborhood, although without the iconic landmarks of the last room. This time my room looks to the east and south of the hospital, but my view of the lake is obstructed by a number of buildings. I can just see the horizon above the tops of the buildings. But there is more activity in this part of the neighborhood to keep me occupied, including the construction of a new high rise just down the street. And everything looks sparkling on a sunny morning--something we have not seen for awhile here in Chicago.
Thanks to those of you who sent ideas on how to pass the time. They all look quite interesting and I hope to explore them as the days go by if my stamina holds. And thanks to all of you for your encouragement--in thought, word, and deed; in prayers, good wishes, and encouraging words. Though I have said it many times, I hope it does not get old. Your love and support has uplifted us and gotten us to this point. Terri and I could not have done it without you. I'll keep you posted as the treatment proceeds. Please keep us in your prayers for strength and patience and, in the end, for even better results in fighting this disease.
