Well ladies, it's my turn to do some traveling.  DH and I leave tomorrow night for MN (Ely, to be exact) to visit my sister who lives there.  Many of my family from Ohio are coming, too.  We have rented a 3 bedroom/2 bath cabin.  It will be my other sister, her DH, my brother, his wife (Annette's sister), 2 nieces, and a great niece.  I am looking forward to it.  It's the first time I will see my family since all this started (except my one sister who visited me between surgeries).  I'm sure it will be somewhat emotional, but a lot of fun.  We have a great relationship, for which I am grateful.  I have prepared for my great niece to ask questions, which she already has, about my cancer and treatment.  I've taken my camera to rads to take pictures of the equipment so I can explain to her.  I'm sure the rest will be interested, too.  I doubt I will have access to a computer while gone, so I will think of you all and give you the details when I return (July 9). 
My rads onc said this is actually a good time to take a break, since my skin is getting red.  I will finish up and do the boosts when I get back.
Don't miss me too much!!!  LOL

Have a safe, wonderful family vacation. It sounds like you will be! Will you be near Lauri at all? I know it is hard to find time when you are with family to see others, but it would be neat if you could meet her. Hugs MK

Kathy: How exciting to have a family reunion. Hopefully the weather there will be better than it has been here in the good old Midwest! That was a great idea to take pic of the rad equipment. I wish I had thought of that for my granddaughter. It sounds as though you are both mentally and emotionally ready for the trip so have lots of fun! Guard that skin from the sun. Sunburn on top of radiation burn won't be fun.
Have a safe trip and look forward to hearing from you on the 9th!

I will be flying in and out of Minneapolis, but then driving 4 hours north.  I'm not sure how much time I will have heading back, but I might be in the Minneapolis area several hours before my flight home. 
Lauri...........maybe we could meet on July 9 before my flight back???
