Peter got one dose of radiation on Friday. He will get another each day Monday to Friday. The swelling is less and he is feeling better. He should be out of the ICU and back on the oncology unit in a couple days.
Yesterday and today we have had friends visiting. They drove down from Washington to be with us and take a vacation during their spring break. Peter has been having fun with them. He reminded me today that when we stayed with them for a night last summer his friend set the alarm for 5:00am so they could get up early enough to play Minecraft together before we hit the road.
This morning Peter was his usual silly self. It’s hard to be sad when he feels so good.
I would say today’s pig is less puffy and more perky than yesterday’s.

This evening a family that used to lead worship for our church in Delhi, CA came to visit. Thirteen people in an intensive care room is technically not supposed to happen, but we got away with it. We played a couple ridiculously long rounds of the game Things. They led worship for us in the hospital room. I’ll just say what I feel about these visits: it’s good to be loved.
Tomorrow while the younger kids are at the school room in the hospital we will begin serious Bible study and discussion about heaven, the resurrection, and the kingdom of God. Reading C.S. Lewis’s Last Battle helps jump start our ability to imagine the kingdom.
