Radiation Week 3

Today is Monday and the beginning of Week 3 of treatment. That means I have labs and doctors appointments in addition to radiation and chemo. It makes for a long day, so it’s also valet parking day. (On less stressful days, I try to walk to a wheelchair instead of plopping down in one first thing.)

The first two weeks weren’t terrible, but the cumulative side effects of treatment & my medicine are really being buttheads now. I’m so glad I enjoyed all I could at the start! That four weeks off from treatment that I get in a couple weeks is sounding really good about now. Can’t wait.

I’m really tired. The most frustrating thing currently is that I can’t write or color much. My hands are useless for gripping anything. I’m just that weak; tapping my phone uses up most of my spoons.

I want to do thank you notes and do things outside the house that don’t involve doctors or being pinned to a radiation table and read more and enjoy a movie or something, but I mostly just sit.

The good news is that by Friday, I will more than halfway through radiation. As Dan always says, “Eyes on the prize!”
