Photos: Our Last 13 Weeks

My feet have come across this rug an awful lot in recent months, but it was only last week that I thought to take a photo of it. 🙂

TODAY is #13 out of 13. We made it! The part of the clinical trial that seemed so impossible at first – 13 straight weeks in a row – ends today. And we go only once a month now for a while. I’ve selected a few photos that span the time.

(Next post I want to say something about the nurses.)

Images: beginning in color, arriving so early the waiting room is still empty, view from parking garage on an Oct morning, garage stairwell, garage elevator buttons, infusion bags, the Hope statue, wheels, The James, treats – my weekly Columbus Dispatch crossword and some Smarties my special patient gave me, November color under street light at 5, wreath on The James, dark arrivals – late November, more wheels, traffic going in, tree dressing and, my favorite of course, the cutting off of the wrist band at the end of each travel day.

    Your pictures remind me of my own journey at OSU. I recognize those parking garage stairwells. Would love to catch up soon.

    I loved the angles of the photos–they do tell the story so well. I too, am glad that a new phase begins. Peace, dear friend.

    The Hope Statue is beautiful and certainly makes a statement.
