Today I go for the radiation simulation, to make sure that the measurments have been calculated correctly. Tomorrow the actual radiation will begin. 7:45 each morning for the next six weeks. Weekends off for good behavior.
By my calculations, I should be finished with radiation by April 22nd.
The first day I stood outside the cancer center, I simply did not want to go in. I lay in bed the night before my first chemo and dreaded that. I did not want to see that morning come. I guess that I've gotten more matter of fact about the situation, because radiation has simply become what stands between me and the end of treatment.
