One Down. Five To Go

I’ve completed the first five of my 30 radiation sessions.

So far, so good.

The weather has been unseasonably cool and it’s been threatening rain all week, so my 45 minute walks to and from the hospital have been pleasant.

I’ve enjoyed having a destination each day. The daily commitment has forced me to pick up the pace of my sloppy stay-at-home routine. And, given that my post-chemo body is too sore to jog and my hole-fallen-into upper body is too sore for my 30min exercise tape, the long walks are perfect.

The radiation targets my entire upper right side — including my neck and portions of my back. I’ve been slathering myself with Glaxal Base and Calendula lotion three times each day in hopes of keeping my skin on long enough to avoid the infamous blisters and weeping sores. Fingers crossed.

All in all, a good week.
