More waiting around...

As most of you know the hospital really wears your patience. That was no more evident then today. I got in for radiation right away. So that went well. Then I got into my room right away. Still no waiting yet. Then they took me out of the room I was in, because I had my room ready. However, the kid who was in the room didn't come back to get him. So he sat in the room for almost 4 hours, which meant I sat in the waiting room for almost 4 hours. I had 3 visitors in the waiting room. My Ma and I played a bunch a Skip-Bo while we waited. At this point I got diarrhea and my bathroom wasn't available to me. Moreover, the bathroom wasn't right in the corner it was a ways down the hall. Have a great day.

It is amazing to witness your never ending endurance with all that you are given every day. I am so blessed to have your presence in my life. There isn't a day that I don't give thanks for the many life lessons you teach me. Know that you are your own best "BOSS" and you have everything you need to take care of all that matters.

With lots of love and a BIG HUG.

Hey Justin,

I am so sorry to hear about the frusterations and difficulties you had to endure at the hospital. I can only imagine what it must be like to have to endure those additional unneeded issues surrounding waiting and logistical things...

What an honor it was to be able to see all the pictures of you and the many important people in your life.

Know you are in my thoughts and prayers so often.

J,

YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT HOSPITALS, THEY NEED PATIENTS. FROM THE SOUNDS OF YOUR TUESDAY HOSPITAL PATIENTS "MUST" HAVE PATIENCE.

THERE IS KNOW DOUBT IN MY MIND ABOUT YOUR FIGHT. FROM WHAT I'M READING ON YOUR BLOG SITE YOU WILL HAVE A LOT OF TAG TEAM PARTNERS TO SHARE IN THE FIGHT.

WHEN THIS IS ALL OVER I THINK WE NEED A GIANT 'PIG PILE' ON GRAMMAS LIVING ROOM FLOOR.

PLEASANT THOUGHTS, SOFT HUGS AND LOADS OF LOVE,

Hey JJ,
Lets just be honest, waiting sucks! I'm a very impatient person, so I can't even imagine waiting in a waiting area for 4 hours. Especially when you are not feeling the greatest anyway. I am going to try to make it up for a visit sometime later this week or this weekend, but will give you a call to see how you're feeling and if you are up for it.

Love ya lots!
Tam
