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.

Does that mean Tim gets a radiant wife for his birthday?

Sending good vibes your way today.

Radiation was much easier than chemo! I actually only had some skin issues and some fatigue. The worst thing was actually going every day - so I laughed at your time off for good behavior on weekends!

Just laughed at Jeanie's comment - then realised that by HER birthday you should well and truly be alight. Hang tight... you are doing brilliantly!!!
