The End Is Near

  • Tomorrow I will complete my 33rd of 33 radiation treatments.  This finish date seemed so far away, but actually came quicker than I thought it would.
  • This week and last week have been a little rough as side affects of the compounded radiation started to set in – my skin has burned and blistered making a bra impossible to wear.  Me without a bra – not a good look!  I'm a bit tired, but work has been very busy so its hard to tell if its the treatment or not.
  • The conclusion of this treatment brings me one step closer to finishing all prescribed treatment for my breast cancer.  The Herceptin infusion every 21 days will last for another 5 months or so.
  • Dr. M ordered a PET scan which I will be taking the first week in December.  This scan will reveal if there are any remaining cancer cells in my body – so pretty important test.  I pray the results are positive.
  • I had the pain in my heel checked out yesterday – seems its Tendonitis.  Dr. R. prescribed an anti inflammatory.  I feel so damn broken!  I need another prescribed drug like a need a hole in my head.  Oh well, it is what it is.  I plan to do a lot of activities in Cabo San Lucas next month, so got to get the dogs right.
  • I'm excited about the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.  We will be eating out, but I do plan to prepare a lite meal for grazing Thanksgiving afternoon.  I have so much to be thankful for. 
  • Enough for now.

Progress 11.23.08

Went out to see what was going on with my new townhome AKA "Foxy"  Some minor progress has occurred since last week.  The biggest thing is that the bricks have arrived!!!

Benzie insisted I put his ass in a picture :)!  Jealousy – maybe.

Radiation Funny

Today while laying on the table in the radiation "chamber" I had the Rad Techs, Zach and Laura laughing – even though I wasn't really trying to – just saying what was on my mind.  Here is how the conversation went:

Rad Tech Zach: Since you started your boost yesterday did I take a picture of your new markings?
Me:  Picture? With a camera?
Rad Tech Zach:  Yes, remember we take photos to put in your medical records.
Me:  Oh, ok.  No, you didn't take a picture yesterday.
Rad Tech Zach:  Where's the camera?
Rad Tech Laura:  Ms. Hopluv you better watch out,  Zach is going to have you on his MySpace.
Me:  Well, he sure ain't gonna get no hits on his page if he does that!
Rad Tech Laura: **laughing** why not?
Me:  Zach's friends are gonna see that pic and say "why does Zach have a big ass, brown, burnt up, marked up tit on his page?  He is taking his job way too far!"
Rad Techs Zach  & Laura: Laughing hysterically.

Maybe you had to be there.
