I survived the first week of radiation. It was a hard week getting used to the routine and the girls being some place different each morning, but we survived. (It was also VBS each evening, which is always a very fun, but tiring week!)
I decided to take a picture each day, so here’s my week of radiation with captions that show where I am as well as how I’m feeling each day.
The picture makes it look far worse than it really is. Each morning, I am greeted by two of the sweetest ladies, Arlene and Kathy. We chat about life as they are lining me up the with green lines you see in the picture. Then they leave the room, I’m zapped 7 times in less than 10 minutes and I’m done for the day.
So far I don’t feel any side effects. I’ve been very tired this week, but it’s hard to know if it’s from the radiation (which is unlikely this early on) or because it’s the first week of summer vacation with the girls. Which ever reason it is, I’ve been able to rest a bit in the afternoon which has helped me make it through the evening with the girls.
Next week, I’ll be back at radiation every day. Plus I have a post surgical checkup with my OB on Monday morning. 🙂 I’ll be posting my picture of the day each day on my blog Facebook page. You can view them here, even if you don’t have a Facebook account.
That’s it for now…
