Me In My Cage!

I thought today I'd share some pictures of the radiation process. It is fascinating. These are the two radiation therapists, Dallas and Darren, that are evicting Grizelda. And yes, that is me in the cage under my favorite red comforter. (It gets cold in that room holding still for an hour!)

This is Darren putting on my "cage"./> He's clamping it to the table so I can't move.This is me snug as a reptile in its skin! I'm trying to decide where I'm going to go for the hour. I ended up staying in the room and letting the angels come to me! I visited with my dad, daughter, grandmothers, a good friend and a few others. Talking to people when you control both sides of the conversation is nice. You ought to try it sometime!

Sherrie, I realize this has nothing to do with your post today, but I have a request...in my recent scripture study I have felt lead to ponder Moroni 10:22"And if ye have no hope ye must needs be in despair; and despair cometh because of iniquity."
When read this, I thought about certain people I know in my life who suffer from depression, and I found myself wondering, "Are depression and despair the same thing? Are people who suffer from depression suffering because of their own iniquity?" That seemed unfair to say.
Since then, a dear friend of mine reminded me that (just as you mentioned in one of your posts) our sins begin with our thoughts, not the actions themselves, and somewhere along the line, we all choose what we will think about.
I would be very interested to hear what you think about this. If you'd like to respond just to me, you can get my email from my sister, Rachel, who is in your ward.
Thanks for sharing your experiences as you attempt to "evict Grizelda". I think I'd like to let the angels come to me, also! I am excited to try!

Thank you for photographing this. I had pictures it totally different. Wow that would be hard to do that for an hour, good thing you have an escape method.

Amy, Thanks! I think the last one is the best picture I've ever taken!

I appreciated you sharing those pictures too. And your imagination amazes me! Your sense of humor is amazing too. No wonder you handle all of this so well. :) It's always fun to control both sides of an imaginary conversations. :D I sent you a picture that was sent to me of Jesus smiling yesterday. Hope you like it.

These pictures are so fun to see. It was also fun to see Dallas. He and his wife were in our married student ward in Logan. Tell him hi from me and Jon!

Jenny, It is so good to hear from you! I'll tell Dallas, hello from you. Today is my last day!
