Only 5 more treatments!

Good morning, everyone! How did you all sleep? Well, I hope! It is quiet this morning. I awoke at 4 am and haven't been able to get back to sleep...yet. I kind of thought this pattern of mine had actually ceased but I see it hasn't totally gone. Do you realize that Pilot Dad has been off work for 3 months, 1 week and 2 days? That staggers my mind when I think of the time like that. In all that time he went in for 1 day of work. My starting point for all this was April 16th which was the day of his first surgery. And now, IT. IS. ALMOST. OVER!!!!!

The other countdown which we are experiencing is the date Pilot will arrive home for a short visit!! Only 17 more days! Pilot Dad's last day of radiation is July 17th and beginning today we only have 17 more days until we see PILOT!!! No wonder I am unable to sleep!! The thoughts just keep exploding in my mind, so full of joy and happiness, excitement, and did I mention JOY?!!!

Well, it's now about 5:30 am and if I want to be able to get through my day I need to go back to sleep for a short while. See you later!

Wow, it's great to see things you have to look forward to! We're praying for these last few days--finish strong.

I take it that Pilot is your son -

we praise God for your excitement and your faithfulness to HIM

Lord Bless U and Pilot Dad
your journey of healing and suffering and patience is different than Pilot Dad, yours is from another perspective and yet the same -- what is truly the same is HIS LOVE AND GUIDANCE FOR US -- may I be as faithful when things get tough ---

Pilot's coming home! How wonderful! I was wondering when they were going to let him come see his papa.

I'm so happy for you! Now go back to bed!!!

Oh wow, the time has flown by! But then I'll bet Pilot Dad has a different perspective on that than I do, huh?

I'm glad he's getting close to the finish line!

Hi there my blogging friend...I was also up at 4:00 am and couldn't get back to sleep until 5:30 or so. But then I had to be up at 7:30 to get ready for work. It's been a 'long' day. I rejoice with you also...that the end is in sight. 3 months can seem like an eternity. You've kept trusting and God has made you alert to his help and presence. What a great combination.
We are heading out on vacation soon...so I won't be back to my 'blog friends' until July 21st or so. I will check in with you then. In the meantime you will be in my prayers.
