So Friday when we went in for Jen's final radiation therapy session at Desk R in the Mayo Clinic's Charlton Building it was good to step aside and recognize another job well done for our heart and soul. And, of course, the spotlight of ringing the bell to mark the end of RT made her uncomfortable.

So, Erin and I will try to carry more of the load as Jen recovers. The radiation therapy continues to work away inside Jen for at least a few more weeks. She's radioactive!
We have all made far too many trips to Desk R - we were told we are not welcome there anymore! But we have gained even more respect for the professionals that treat cancer families with compassion and consistency. Over this 6 weeks we have witnessed an ever greater fellowship among fellow RT patients and families. We are grateful for the fellowship. We are also grateful for our leader. Even if she doesn't want anyone to notice.
