a good day

I had my radiation simulation appointment today for the five "boost" radiation treatments happening at the end and I didn't need any additional tattoos. I am feeling pretty battle scarred so am happy about that. Plus, on another positive note, I officially have bed head in the morning!! Ok, it is more like a slight flatness on one side, but it is growing like crazy so will be much messier soon.

day 9

Radiation started last week and it has quickly become part of the daily routine. It is hard to believe I am having my ninth treatment already. My skin is just starting to get a little burnt but the fatigue hasn't gotten any worse than what's leftover from chemotherapy. They say it will start to hit next week. I feel like I am having my own little Big Brother experience everyday because the technicians leave the room after getting me all lined up and watch me on a monitor and talk to me through a mic while I get zapped. I don't get to vote anybody off though.
