I've been putting off writing this post. Just saying the words, "I've started the boost, with 5 days left, I've started the second boost, I have 3 days left", seems a bit scary. What if I can't do that last day?
Because tomorrow really is that last day. The very last day of treatment. One more day. After that, no more days of radiation.
I did well today and yesterday, too, they were long days with extra pictures being taken. The pictures taken today goofed up and had to be re-taken, but I was surprisingly calm since they let me a a little mask-free break. It is harder to want to get on the table, but we are learning a system, thank goodness , the biggest one is dealing with the mucus, which I can suction all out, and then think of things or have loud music going. I feel a new determination to GET THIS DONE, and it will be over. Then there will be better days ahead, slowly better, but better.
Especially since I start chemo again on Monday. And chemo with it's steroids has always made me feel better.
So, I can lie around this weekend being tired and having lots of naps, and Jim can pack for my long day of chemo, unless I feel like it, then I can do it. I seem to be quite content sitting around all day doing nothing at chemo, but we really should do some office work. There really isn't much going on for me in chemo, just waiting around mainly for the fluid to go in all day the first day, so the second days of a couple hours each, seem really short and quick.
Anyway, aren't these some truly beautiful flowers? I've been lucky to get some beautiful bouquets and have thoroughly enjoyed them. It is fun to see the color combinations, the choices of colors, the different kinds of flowers. The floral companies arrange them so well, and what fun it must be to choose the colors to use.
I really appreciate those who have sent cards and flowers and letters and comments, to cheer up my days and to remind me that someone is remembering me.
Thank you so much dear ones.
