  • Everyday at 4:30 I go to a radiation/chemo center for my radiation treatment. I have prostate cancer, and I will be getting these treatments for 39 more days(but who is counting). I now know the people who go before me, the people who go after me, the nurses, the receptionists and the doctors. Last Thursday we had an unexpected snowstorm and the appointments were running very late. When I got there at 4:30 they told me that it would be at least an hour wait. It turned out to be a little longer. All of the patients were angry with the receptionist and the nurses who come and get them. I do not think that they were angry about being late, I think they are angry about having cancer. I wanted to explain this to all of them but I do not know them well enough......yet. I played Scrabble with Friends on my cell phone with my kids.
