Dear Family & Friends,

"All's quiet in the western front"...  actually, life is beginning to be 
enjoyable again.  A bit more 'rustig' (quiet, calm).  Margreet has had 
her last radiation therapy.  It is now a time of letting go and let the 
thing do the work.  The radiation and the angels (and the prayers, 
visualizations, energy directing and all those things you folks have 
been doing).

The doctor warned us that during the next 2 weeks she may experience 
deep fatigue and exhaustion, as well as other negative effects from the 
therapy.  So far she's not been too tired, only after some activity she 
needs to rest for a while, but she's already contributing to the 
workings of the family as much as she can with one arm unwilling to 
cooperate.  Meanwhile, her hair has begun to fall out.  She says she 
doesn't mind it.  Rather be bald than nauseous.  This week she planning 
a trip to Hilversum with two of her dear girlfriends to look for some 
head gear.  (one of them said something that sounded like "drie slits 
zoeken een moet", does that sound like anything to you?... Hey!  I'm 
just the scribe here.)

Tomorrow she'll begin her physiotherapy.  She wants to regain the use of 
her arm and be able to walk by herself.  It's extremely frustrating for 
her not being able to go an comfort a crying baby or play with Arianna 
so that Mom can do her work around the house.   I have my fingers 
crossed for her to succeed.

Meanwhile, here's a photo of oma and Ryan.
