Count down to the 29th of Dec. when I hope all the hard part is done. I’m getting some swelling at the site of radiation, but not bad so far. Supposedly I will feel the worst the week after I’m finished with the radiation…but at least I will be home. (Unless I have to come in for skin sores treatments, they said. NOT!! …I hope)
I am packing this morning to go home for the weekend. I go in for AM treatment and then drive directly home from JH. I’m doing OK with the driving. They said most patients are able to manage the driving. I’m still far too tired most days. But I got a good nights sleep last night, so I have a good start to today…until about 2 pm, when I crash regularly.
The place I’m staying at is lovely. I couldn’t ask for nicer hosts or a better situation. But it’s still not home. Amazing how we miss the familiarity of home when we are away. People are decorating for Christmas. It doesn’t feel like Christmas to me. I cancelled it this year.
Gotta hit the road again…
