It has been about two weeks since my radiation treatments finished. The treatments left me with less appetite and complete exhaustion. The treatments were short (about 15 minutes long), 5 days a week, for two weeks. It wasn't painful at all and was like being in a CT scanner. Laying down, very still, as the machine moved around me. I felt like some weird, microwave burrito :).
After finishing radiation, I took a week off of all treatments, but started back with vitamin C infusions last week (on Mondays and Thursdays). In a couple of weeks, I will have blood work, a repeat abdominal CT scan and also an MRI on my left shoulder. My shoulder has been aching over the last couple of weeks, so to be safe the doctor wants a scan (I think I might just be getting old and creaky :).
Last week, we had lots of smoke from the surrounding fires, and an eery, orange cloud of smoke around our house. Even though it felt very close, we were never evacuated from our house.
I thank God for His protection.
I really enjoyed this talk of Michael Ramsden's, so I thought I'd pass it on to you:
Love and hugs to my wonderful support team,
