We will be coming home on Saturday, so this was our last chance to attend the Bible Church that Kathy & I located that first Sunday. Jack & Jean really liked this church as well. The singing was really good again, and J & J got to meet Keith and Wilma. (pic) This is the couple who has a daughter in Waxahachie (Dr. Gorman) - they invited us out for lunch, and the Napoli restuarant was excellent. Keith told us that this restuarant had been in Panama since the 50's and that it's big favorite of the locals. He also shared some stories of the years in Panama when Noriega was in power - very restless times for Americans who were living here. Since they have been in Panama for almost 40 years, they obviously can speak the language well and drive in the city. I've told you about the drivers here, and Wilma gets in her Toyota and jumps right in the middle of them - she's good!
We're heading into our final week at the clinic and at PT. We are hoping to go to the Lab where they process and keep all of the stem cells. We will also have our final meeting with Dr. Paz when he will tell us how many millions of stem cells they put in my body. I am also hoping to move my final injection to Thur instead of Friday because we have to leave the apt at 4:30 AM on Saturday so Friday needs to be a "get packed and ready" day not a "get injection and lie prone" day.
I would like to say once again - thanks for your comments and for your prayers. You have truly helped these weeks go by quicker than I ever thought they would. I hope the blog has given you a little insight into Panama and into stem cell treatments - both were new to me until June and now I'm a big fan of both!
