FOUR DOWN ONE TO GO.......A GOOD DAY AT THE LONDON CANCER CLINIC

I'm beginning to feel like an old hand at London's Regional Cancel Center as I bopped in today for my second to last radiation treatment.  I know where to go I know what to do.  I don't have to ask any questions anymore or walk around with a Senior's bewildered look on my face.  They are very punctual and I was again taken into the radiation room right on time.  Same room as the last two times.  Same procedure, same whirring machine, same amount of time.  I will be back in that same room early Monday morning at 7:30 for my last treatment.  What happens after that I haven't a clue.

OH GEEZZZZ I THINK SOMEBODY LEANED TO HEAVILY ON THE 'EXTRA RADIATION' SWITCH TODAY
HEADING HOME JUST AT THE BEGINNING OF LONDON'S FRIDAY AFTERNOON RUSH
Another beautiful weather day as Pheebs and I made our way around a few country roads northwest of Clinton this morning.  Brushed by the Hullett Marsh but didn't go in.  Saw one farmer harvesting beans and another harvesting corn.  Thought it was kind of early for corn but then again I'm not a farmer so what do I know.
I WAS SURPRISED TO SEE CORN BEING HARVESTED 
'ARE WE HOME YET DAD'
I again left for London on the early side today and took in the scenery along the way.  London traffic was light and no problems were encountered.  The coming home traffic was heavier but rolled right along.  Enjoyed the rural countryside all the way home.  By the way London has a population of 381,000 according to a sign I saw.  Made it home a few minutes after 4 p.m.
WE HAVE A LUSH LOOKING COUNTRYSIDE
Not much else going on for the rest of the day so now I have Saturday and Sunday to worry about getting up early enough Monday morning to make it back to London again.  Actually the problem isn't in waking up......it's getting to and staying asleep the night before.

BEAN FIELD BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT KIND OF BEANS
HARVESTING AND EARLIER RIPENED BEAN FIELD
At this point there are no further medical appointments for either Kelly or I until early October when Kelly has two in London and I have one Clinton.  Any of those appointments could easily lead to further medical procedures so we will just have to wait and see what happens.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( An old man visits his doctor and after thorough examination the doctor tells him: "I have good news and bad news, what would you like to hear first?" Patient: "Well, give me the bad news first." Doctor: "You have cancer and I estimate that you have about two years left." Patient: "Oh no! That's awful! In two years my life will be over! What kind of good news could you probably tell me, after this??"  Doctor: "You also have Alzheimer's. In about three months you are going to forget everything I told you."

Little Emily was complaining to her mother that her stomach hurt. Her mother replied, “That’s because it's empty. Maybe you should try putting something in it." The next day, the pastor was over at Emily's family's house for lunch. He mentioned having his head hurt, to which Emily immediately replied, "That's because it's empty. Maybe you should try putting something in it."

  2. Hi Al, with your "extra radiation" - you are ready to go storm Area 51 in Nevada with everyone else today. Not sure if that news is shown in Canada but YOU might be one of the Aliens they are looking for & get captured. πŸŽƒπŸƒπŸ

  4. Your treatment seems to have gone by quickly. Likely for you it seems longer. Nice to have a wee break before the next set of appointments. Maybe you should treat yourselves to something special.

  5. Glad they're taking such good care of you, and that you're close to done! Your countryside is so lush and green. Nice to have a break from medical appointments for sure.

  6. That corn is being cut green as silage and will be stored in a silo where it will get hot and a chemical reaction preserves it as cattle food. Happy to hear your treatments are all but done. Sure hope it comes out well. A blogger I follow had to have two different treatments and is now waiting for test results. It seems every older guy has Prostate cancer nowadays.
