Jim’s Treatment

We are forging ahead with treatment for Jim’s prostate cancer.  We met with the staff this last Monday at Loma Linda University Medical Center Proton Therapy center.  He was fitted with his “pod.”  This coming Monday, he will have a mock treatment, then start the proton beams on Tuesday.  He will be treated Monday through Friday for 20 treatments.  Since the traffic is terrible between our home and Loma Linda, we decided to rent an apartment just 4 blocks away.  It is a fully furnished 1 bedroom with all utilities, TV and internet included.  We are renting from a very nice couple, about our ages.  We move in tomorrow.  We feel very positive about the outcome and plan to make the most of our little “vacation.”
