Measure Up

These are two of the wonderful staff who looked after me for my radiotherapy. The music in the background was usually either Johnny Cash or Elvis. Very difficult for me to keep my hips still during Suspicious Minds.


This is the machine that administers the radiation. No one is allowed in the room except the patient while it is emitting the radiation. This particular footage shows the machine twisting onto its side to take a profile of my chest in X-ray. A few times a week they would take such an X-ray to monitor the progress of the therapy. The screen that you see unfolding is the receiving part of the digital X-ray.

Wow, looks high tech. Did they play that creepy music in the background to relax you or scare you. I wasn’t sure!

I just want to say that the whole stem cell thing is fascinating to me. Do you mind if I tell your story to my Biology class? They have lots of questions about stem cells. Sorry to hear about your virus, I can only imagine how prolonged sickness can really be. One day soon you will have to remember what it was like to be sick because it will be so easy to forget it! You will feel good again, I can feel it!

Stay tuned Kelley for a video of the stem cell harvesting process! Should go up today sometime. Happy to conference call or skype your class also if they have questions.
Much love,

Now this I understand well – invisible rays that do incredible things at the push of a button, and all part of God’s amazing design!
Sorry to hear that you are under the weather again – we have been rejoicing with you that you have been so well. We hope & pray that you will start to feel better again soon, and that you won’t be needing those stem cells!
Love,
Di.
