All done!

Today is crazy hair day at Covenant Christian School. It makes for a very fun day. They don't have to wear uniforms and Friday is hot lunch day as well. Cole decided to wear boxers on his head yes underwear. Carter spiked his hair and we spayed it blue. The following picture shows crazy hair then scary hair (that's me). I still haven't been able to make light of the hair loss. I am not sure if I ever will. The older boys do not like to see it as well. Hair is still coming out. No jokes are had about the lack of hair at our home. I am ultra sensitive but very thankful of the hair I do have that covers the enormous bald area along with the stylish bands.
Tonight we plan on having movie night once more as tradition holds. Last Friday we watched The Miracle Worker the story of Helen Keller in black & white. Even little Stu watched intently till he was summoned to bed. Good discussions are had with great movies! Tonight we will watch Facing the Giants. It is a movie of a football team. I don't really know too much about it.

Dave called me as I was parking the van at Siteman. He was boarding his plane and wanted to say hi before I went in for treatment. It was soo good to speak with him. I did tell him of the boys picking out my last song to listen to at radiation. It was by Sarah Groves - It's Gonna be Alright. It made me cry this morning in the van. Cole wanted to know why I was wiping my eyes. I told them both it is because I love them so. This is just such an emotional journey.

Thanks for listening and laughing with me Kim and Jessica, radiation therapists.
Officially the mask is home. Glad to have one treatment phase behind us. Pray that we make wise decisions in the weeks ahead.

All done with radiation! Kate

I have been smiling for you all day long. I drove by Siteman this morning and was so glad it was your last day of RT. Congratulations. You made it through this time without "wasting it"--as you wrote about in a post a while back. I hope you have a great weekend celebrating. I will continue to pray. Keep us posted. :o)

Congratulations Kate! I am so excited for you. This is a phase in the journey that anyone would be glad to have over. I know that Chase will be very happy when his radiation is complete here in Houston. Only 9 more treatments for him! :-)
In Houston,but from NC,

Your friend Joe from the Hope Lodge is my best friend Clara's dad. Thank you for blessing his life. Kate, God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. He is able to heal you. I am a prayer warrior and I am going to pray for you. I believe God's promises are for us in these times, as well as from the days Jesus walked the earth. I have seen God heal and perform miracles. My pastor, David Godat, has a radio program in St. Louis. It's on 1010 AM on Tuesdays at 10:10 a.m.
May God bless you.
