Yooper...the spot at the lake sounds beautiful. A great getaway place.
Sorry about your Packers (said with a few snickers by a Bears fan. You can snicker right back after the Bears lose again tonight).
Be sure to keep the journal current and always try to write while the events are fresh in your mind. I found that I would forget important details if I let too much time pass. Also, when I was groggy in the hospital, I really should have tried to jot something down each evening, because the exact sequence of events during those 3 days had become a bit clouded by the time I wrote things down. My wife's memory was sometimes better than mine in that regard.
I was betting you would choose brachy because the emphasis in most of your posts was on minimizing side effects. Brachy would probably have been my choice, too, had I been a candidate for it, which I wasn't.
