Day -10 (minus 10) "The Countdown begins"

We had an early start (5am at UCLA for admission)and 7:30am surgery for central line placement, but all went well. Dale is now a little sore, but resting well. We spent the morning reading "happy pages" from friends and church class mates. It was fun to watch him laugh and giggle. Auntie Shari came and helped us hang up pictures and cards to decorate his room. The room is comfortable with an extra bed for Mom with a small refrigerator and a even a bathtub for Dale. Tomorrow is Day -9 with total body radiation at 0700 and 1300. We were able to enjoy a few minutes of sunshine outside for lunch and took a little stroll around the front of the hospital.
We miss all of you already.
Thank you for your prayers.
Dale, Jules and Wade.
