Every day for the past 3 weeks I have attended some type of doctors appointment. Have you ever just sat and watched the people around you. As I was waiting to have my therapy this morning I was watching all of the other people that have cancer too. There was a lovely couple sitting at the puzzle table, not saying a word to one another, but I could from across the room feel the love they had for each other. They were probably in their mid 60's. She was dressed in a hospital gown, so I am assuming that she was the sick one. I swear that I could feel his worry for her. They just sat there worked on the puzzle and enjoyed the moment. There is another man I also see every day. he cannot walk into therapy on his own and every day he has to wait for someone or a bus to pick him up when he is finished. I am so lucky that i can still get there on my own.
Radiation therapy reminds me of a symphony. I lay on this table while the green and red lasers line themselves up with my body. There is always beautiful music playing. The lights from the green lasers do a little light show on the ceiling. Then quiet and you can hear the treatment. Only about 5 minutes and it is finished. It is really kind of surreal.
I am always thinking about the other people that I have met since this all started. I hope and pray that many of them are still fighting and well, but I also worry when I don't see them . I wonder how their treatments are going or if they are going to make it.
Just an observation...
