We arrived in Houston at about 11:30 on Sunday. After finding 8181 Fannin Street, we unpacked our car and then decided to venture out and about the town. We made a trial run to downtown where mom's radiation will take place in the Main MD Anderson Building. We found it with no problems! We then went to the Super Target to get groceries for the next couple weeks, and came back to the apartment to unload groceries and relax a bit. Mom and I went swimming in the freezing cold pool right outside our room, and sat outside for a while just enjoying the weather. It was 85 degrees today with low humidity, and gets about 60 degrees at night. Our apartment is very pleasant, and exceeded our expectations by 100%. It has 2 California King sized beds that have tempurpedic mattresses, and it was move-in ready when we got here.
We had spaghetti tonight for dinner, and Cindy Bateman and Mike Sullivan joined us. Mom enjoyed seeing Cindy again, and Mike has always been a family favorite. I met Cindy for the first time tonight and she's a barrel full of laughs! She will only be here for the next 3 weeks, so we hope to see her again atleast once before she leaves Houston.
Mom has a bloodwork appointment tomorrow morning at 9 a.m., and then she'll get her first radiation treatment at 10:50 a.m. Her radiation treatment will only take about 20 minutes and then she'll be done for the day. We discussed maybe going to Galveston Beach after that, since it's only about 45 minutes from Houston, but we're not 100% sure yet. We just thought that it'd be nice to enjoy the beach, and listen to the waves roll in.
Aside from that, we will post tomorrow night about mom's first radiation treatment and how she's feeling. Keep the prayers coming! :)
