I haven't been blogging much, but not to worry....I have been feeling great....radiation treatments have been going well...and guess what???Today is our last day for treatments! Yep...number 16 of 16. After today, we will not have to spend 5 hours a day driving into Halifax...sitting in a waiting room...and driving back home. I disliked commuting in my working days, and that attitude hasn't changed. But...we have been lucky with the weather....and more than lucky with my treatments.
Despite the warnings of side effects, I have been blessed with only mild reactions. I feel tired easily...I have felt absolutely exhausted a few times (solved with a nap)...and I have a weird rash (that the doctor has never seen as a radiation reaction before). I think the rash was caused by the aloe vera (I was told to use aloe to counteract the skin burning that radiation causes).
So, after this afternoon's treatment we celebrate. We were planning on a nice dinner out to celebrate, but our plans changed. Stay tuned for more details.
