Getting Proton Radiation Treatment feels like groundhog day: wake-up, don't eat (because of the anesthesia), drive to the Children's Hospital, check-in, get vitals, re-check info to make sure nothing has changed, get connected, walk back to the Proton room, get up on the table, distract with iPad while the "sleepy medicine" gets injected, give kisses...Proton Therapy takes place while we wait in the waiting room (about 30 minutes), then Caroline goes to recovery, the nurse gets us when she wakes up, and as soon as she has stable vitals, we head out for the day! Repeat. It's really a simple process, so we will just update the blog weekly while we are here, unless something unusual occurs.
Also, we are so thankful to our friend, Jennifer Leonard, and the Walker Baptist Church, for hosting a special pancake dinner and bake sale in honor of Caroline. If you're in Franklin, and available tonight, swing by! A lot of work went into this event and we are very grateful for all the friends, helpers and bakers that are putting this on. We are with you in spirit!
Thank you for your constant prayers this week; we are amazed at how well it went.
