Ken's prayer shawl
Waiting for radiation.
 As of today, Ken has completed seven radiation treatments and two chemotherapy treatments. He has tolerated everything fairly well thus far, little problems like swollen lips, sunburn, slight nausea and the like are not fun...but, not dangerous either. Had to wait from 6:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for the radiation treatment today. Machine went down and we had to wait for it to be brought back online. Good news is...Ken didn't have to miss a treatment. Unfortunately, quite a few people had to have their treatments put off until Monday.

Ken received a wonderful package from our friend Jan Heckman from Superior, Wisconsin. She took the time to write a very sweet poem of encouragement for Ken (and framed it),and made him the beautiful prayer shawl you see him wearing in the picture above. He was very touched by both gifts.

The other picture is yet another "waiting Alward" photo. This was from our wait in radiation this morning.
So, now you are completely up-to-date. The sky is about to open up and rain and thunder and lightening, so I will say goodbye for now.
