Thursday, May 30, Rebecca accompanied Bonnie and me to Jackson, MS where Bonnie underwent dental work in preparation for later installation of a crown on one of her teeth. That evening, we three spent the night in a hotel a few blocks from the medical complex and on the same street.
Friday morning by 6:30 a.m. we were at the hospital for Bonnie’s surgery to implant a chemo port below the skin on her upper, left chest. By 11:30 a.m. that part of the venture for the day was completed, and she was taken by wheelchair to the Cancer Center in the same complex. Bonnie’s first round of chemotherapy was complete by about 3:00 p.m., and we left for something to eat on the way back to Winona.
We arrived back in Winona, MS at 5:00 p.m., whereupon we went to the Wal-Mart pharmacy to retrieve prescriptions that the oncology office had called in ahead. Shortly after returning to the house, Bonnie became ill with nausea and vomiting. She is resting, and we look forward to a peaceful night’s slumber tonight and scaled back activity on Saturday.
Bonnie, Rebecca and I together will evaluate Bonnie’s travel worthiness for this weekend’s upcoming appointment in Alabama. Rebecca is prepared to stay with her mother if she is not up to traveling with me.
In any case, we continue to be thankful to our God and to each child of God for their tender expressions of concern and prayers. Upon examining the mail in our mailbox after returning home (much like every day for weeks now), several get well cards lifted Bonnie’s morale and encouraged both of us.
