David went for his third radiation appointment today. His dad took him today since I took him yesterday. He reported that David was tired, but that could be because of the early hour of the appointment. His appointment today was 8:30 a.m., which means David was up by 6 a.m. That is far earlier than he has been getting up, but we want him to try to make it to at least his last class of the day. Today, the last class was preempted for the homecoming pep rally. David got to go to his pep rally, and Austin (his sister) won a giant glass jar of candy. Needless to say, she was pretty excited after school. I picked them up after school and drove them to their dad’s house, where Mrs. Woodside met us for David’s afternoon tutoring.
Mrs. Woodside has been coming each day to work with David, and we are very fortunate to have such a caring teacher helping him with his assignments. She is young and energetic, and he really enjoys working with her. She is also Austin’s math teacher, so it works out well for both kids.
They are planning to go to part of the homecoming game tonight to see the floats and their friends. It’s supposed to be pretty cold , so I don’t think they will stay for the whole game. I am happy to see David and Austin taking part in the activities at school. I hope that these are memories that they will carry with them throughout their lives.
