Having Fun Yet?

Mom isn't.  But how much fun can anticipating radiation be?  Let's be honest....

But the truth is, she is looking forward to beginning this next step in the process.  She starts radiation on Wednesday for 33 sessions.  Roughly 6 weeks or so.  Each day of the work week.   

She's anticipating more tiredness, and less nausea.  More sleep.  Less ache.  Sounds glamorous, I know...but I think for her, it's a little something she's glad to be getting going. 

Keep the thoughts and prayers, good vibes, gifts, letters, etc. coming.  I know how very much they mean to her.

And watching her being carried by the love, faith, prayers, and words of all of you wonderful friends and family out there has meant the world to all of us. 



  1. Katie...can you remind us what radiation does? Hang in there my sweet auntie...there is love coming at you from all directions ;)

  2. Thank you so much for preparing the write-ups! I often wonder how Gayle is doing but can't always figure out how to get here without someone forwarding it to me. Gayle -- you are in our prayers regularly. Thank you (and Randon and your kids) for being such a wonderful example to us all. May you all be blessed in all you do,

    Rob and Jill

  3. Dear Gayle,
    I have been forgetting to go to your blog lately - such beautiful comments. It inspired me and made me realize what a fabulous person you lift me up every day. I am rooting and praying for you always. Keep up that great spirit that touches so many lives. I am so grateful for our friendship. You have helped me be strong and helped me to have better sense in this crazy topsy turvy world. Sorry that the blog says Meredith on it....I don't know how to get my name on there....

    Love you a ton....Nancy
