One more radiation treatment, and I'm done Thirty out of thirty.

I've been extremely fatigued this week and took three naps--unheard of for me.

I also lost more hair but the top part is covering my bald spots. Yesterday, as I walked from the cancer center to the car, a brisk wind stirred up, blowing my hair, and I thought, Well, somebody's to going to see some baldness. Haha.

Pictured above are the radiation therapists locking my mask/helmet onto my acrylic "pillow." They've been cheerful and kind, and I appreciate them.

Also pictured are the bouquet of roses Milton gave me as we as the meaning card. He's said to our congregation many times: "Kristy is my partner in life and ministry." And, as the card says, we're partners in love.

I know you must be glad to be almost through. It has been interesting to me to actually see how this treatment was done to you. Milton sure is a great guy and what precious words, "Partners in Love".
I, too, am praying for God to extend your life, sweet Kristy!

Came back to post an excerpt from's daily devo today:

Do you need God's healing touch on your body today? I know that a good
percentage of people reading these words need God's healing touch. Many of
you are reading these words today in tremendous pain. Many of you are
reading these words today as you face an upcoming surgery. Many of you are
reading these words today as you deal with a serious disease. Many of you
are reading these words today as you are trying to heal from a sickness or
injury. Every person reading these words today has a family member, friend,
or someone you know who needs God's healing touch. Let me say this very
As you read these words today I want to remind you of a great truth. GOD IS
NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS. What that simply means is what God has done for
someone else, God will do for you. Please, let me say that one more time so
you can let it sink into your Spirit. What God has done for someone else,
God will do for YOU!!!

In the Bible, we read about the woman with the issue of blood. God's Word
tells us that she spent all of her money on the doctors of her day trying to
get better without any success. Then one day she heard about a man named
Jesus coming to her town who was doing great miracles, including healing
people. With no other hope, she exercised that "measure of faith" each
person has and began to believe Jesus could heal her. We read how when she
got to the place Jesus was ministering, a great crowd, the Bible calls it a
"throng," was already present. Now it would have been very easy for this
woman to get discouraged after seeing all the people gathered around Jesus
and simply give up and go home. But you see this woman was not going to be
denied the opportunity to see our Lord, the One she was believing could heal

We read how she pressed through the crowd of people. I can picture this
woman elbowing her way past people, pushing them out of her way, wading
through this sea of humanity foot by foot until she was finally close enough
to reach out and touch the hem of the garment Jesus was wearing. The Bible
tells us that the moment she touched the hem of His garment she was
instantly healed. Please understand that there was nothing magical about
what Jesus was wearing that day. His garment had no magical healing powers.
It simply became a point of contact for her faith. She had the faith to
believe as she stretched our her hand and grabbed the hem of His garment
that she would be healed, and she was!!!
