Day - 7

Today 2/8, we woke up on time. The radiation went well but like clockwork Dale started to feel sick around noon and felt better around 2pm. Breakfast seems to be his best meal. Lunch consists of a few bites. After the 1pm radiation session, he manages to have a snack. Today's snack was a peanut butter and jelly sandwich which he threw up just before dinner. Having thrown up, he felt better and ate dinner. Dale eats so much for breakfast the nurses are not too concerned if he doesn't eat the rest of the day. Sally came to visit with Dale so I went for a walk in the botanical garden next to the hospital populated by about a million squirrels. I also walked to one of the nicest Ralph's supermarket I have every seen. Later in the day we were treated with a 30 minute "patio privelege" so we took a walk outside. Dale was able to feel the fresh air and the sun. He felt so good he walked up 3 flights of stairs to his room instead of taking the elevator. A letter came from Percival Penguin today with pictures too. Dale is tickled pink with his new pen pal. Thank you to whoever set that up for him. We share the letters with the nurses and other staff here. Wade, Danny and Derek came to visit this evening. It was nice to see the three together again. They watched Gray's Anatomy and went home. We thank God for having made it through another day. Blessings to you all.
