I report that after my 3rd Chemotherapy session yesterday, following my gut reconstructed Whipple’s surgery on 4/1/2016, I am doing well TODAY. Thus far with all the prep medications given me yesterday, I have more energy than the previous 4 days. Last night, after the infusion session at Virginia Mason, we went to Kim and Bishop Kirby Unti home for dinner and a pre-convention caucus to plan our delegations logistics in New Orleans this August. (I am timing my treatments and am looking forward to this Church-wide experience.) We had a lovely time; and met and got better acquainted with the other new fellow voting delegate from our WA NW ELCA Synod. It was most gracious of the Unti’s to do this for all of us. We offer Kirby and Kim our deeply felt thanks and appreciation.
As most of you know, last year I bid and won a 14-month VIP Premier Golf membership with privilege to invite 3 others to play together with two electric golf carts at Pt Ludlow via a fund raiser event for Martha and Mary. Subsequently I assembled quite a group of duffers and we all enjoyed our outings tremendously. Unfortunately, due to my illness, I did not play as much as I had hoped since October. But the golf director at Ludlow was gracious and kind enough and allowed me to pass my membership to Steve Stenberg who continued my objective to collect reduced green fees from all players but donate all the proceeds back to Martha and Mary. Sad to say, today the membership expires. Moreover I cannot be on the course! But Steve and 3 others are there and I am sure they are having fun for me. I am also pretty certain that our final total contribution to Mary and Mary through this bid will exceed $4500.00!!
Not too many more treatments to go. I’ll have a repeat CT scan in 4 weeks, and we’ll go from there.
Thanks All for visiting, showing and sharing your care and concerns.
God’s Peace, Grace, Love and Blessings be upon all humanity and all His creation.
