Half Way Done With Radiation!

(Note: If this is your first time visiting my page, thank you for your concern and support. You may want to read the pages to the left first (My Story, About Me, My Dr. Oz / Oprah Story, etc.), then read from below. My latest blog entries will feed to the top automatically. The most recent blog entries are also listed as links on the bottom left.)

I’m just about half way done with radiation.  I’ll have 33 treatments in total and I’m done with 15 of them!  So far, I still don’t have any side effects so that’s great.  They said my skin would be red and irritated and I’d be really tired by now, but I’m not either.  The only thing I’d say is it’s annoying having to go every day, since I have a long commute to work afterwards and the earliest available appointment they have is 8:45am, which means I have to get up and start working from home, pack up my computer, drive to my appointment, then afterwards drive into the office, unpack my computer, by which time I get caught up on emails (most of my department is in Brussels so they’re already almost done with their work day by the time I get started with mine), and then it’s time for lunch.  I finish work after lunch, pack up my computer that evening and it starts all over the next morning.  Wwwfew!!!!!!  But other than that, everything’s good. 🙂  Alright, I’m off to the Panthers tailgate!!  Our first home-game-weekly TV tailgate!  We’re bringing a big screen TV, a generator, a wireless cable antenna, food, tables, chairs, etc.  We’re not going to the game, just tailgating.  🙂

    Half way there! Congratulations! And what a wonderful day at the Komen Walk; quite an experience. Keep up the courageous work – 15 to go – and I hope and pray that the “no side-effects” continue. You are a true warrior!

    Love & prayers,

    Just checking in on you this morning…can’t believe you’re nearly done! Hoorah! Again, you are truly amazing…and not even any side effects from the radiation! What’s the latest on Dr. Oz? I’ve been away on vacation for a couple of weeks, so I’m a tad behind!
    Lots of hugs,
