Home? Not sure that I have a physical address that I would call "home" right now. Our house here in Okinawa is almost completely packed. Tomorrow, August 9, our container arrives. My hubby will commence to pack it on Tuesday with the help of Br. McGuire and some wonderful teenage "volunteers"! The containter will depart around August 15 for its month long journey to Cleveland. Christa is in Ohio and busy trying to locate a place for us to hang our hats when we land on September 3.
We settled my father into a nursing home/rehab facility on Friday, July 30. On August 2, we landed back here in Okinawa and August 4 I had my next Herceptin treatment. August 23 I will be having a heart scan and August 25 will be my next Herceptin treatment. September 9 at 2:30 pm is my first appointment at Cleveland Clinic with the doctor specializing in my type of breast cancer.
Please continue to pray for my father, Ron Wagner. He is paralyzed on his left side. The doctors are amazed at his memory and speech. Pray for my Madrasta, Annetta, as she faces many new challenges caring for my dad. While in the States, I did get to see my brother and sister-in-law. Also, my oldest sister Carol was able to make it up from Chicago for a day. My nieces and the great grandsons met us at the rehab on Saturday. I haven't seen them all for years and it was wonderful to renew our relationship. They have the cutest sons!!!!
I guess that about raps this up! Below are some pictures from our time in Minnesota. You will notice that my hair is starting come in quite nicely.
