the Patient's milestone

One year ago today the Patient began his treatment for tonsil cancer. He reported in at 10 AM for his first of (thank God!) only eight Amifostine shots and his first of 35 radiation treatments. And here he is, twelve months later on a clear and sunny road to complete recovery. He stopped treatment on Tuesday, November 14, 2006. We will be in Vicenza for that milestone and will celebrate appropriately, so long as that gala includes a heaping plate of porcini mushrooms. But for tonight probably one of the special bottles of red we've been storing for some splendid occasion. Can't think of a better one.

I am currently writing these blog entries on my very ancient and tired Mac laptop. I can't put up photos, can't enlarge type or do any of the whiz-bang things the new (and currently sick) machine can do. Just the basics. I was hoping to get a snap of the Patient doing his garden chores to prove how well he looks. It will have to wait.

Congrats to you both ~ what a year. We are both fortunate to live in areas with great health care.
