Ed & Marilyn 'The Happy Wanderers' travel blog

Today was a crazy day. It began as I was getting into the shower this morning. I heard the phone ring but finished my shower before asking Marilyn what the call was about. She said the Cancer Center called to explain that some equipment was “down” and they had called a Tech from St Louis. They hoped to get things fixed but would notify me if it became possible to get my radiation therapy today.

I had an appointment in Palmyra so I left early for that and stopped by the office to assure Julie that I would be ready to lead a tour scheduled for 4:00 PM.

I then drove to Palmyra, took care of business, and returned to Hannibal where Marilyn & I shared some lunch.

I noticed a missed call on my phone and returned the call, and discovered that the complex equipment for radiation therapy has been repaired and I could come in for therapy at 2:00 PM.

I quickly began drinking water as I prepared for the treatment but had to get up from the table to drink more water. The second attempt also was aborted as I needed more time to take care of preparation.

I was concerned about my tour and worried that I might not be back at the cave by 3:30. Things worked out just fine though and I was home right at 3:30. When I arrived, Marilyn informed me that the tour I planned to lead had been cancelled.

Jennifer called and we chatted for a while. I’ll tell you about that in a day or so.

We had plans to drive into town to watch the homecoming parade but our grandson, Colby, was unable to join his teammates on the float so we decided to attend the Hog Roast here at the Cave. The food was wonderful and many kudos go to Linda and Julie and the other staff members for the great job they did getting this convention put together.

I met several of the cave owners including the Cave of the Winds in Manitou Springs, Colorado. We will definitely go there next summer.

That’s a wonderful way to end a very busy day.

Life is Good!
