As of 7:55 this morning, I’ll have notched 19 of my 30 radiation treatments.
And — touch wood — pinched muscles and speckled redness have been my only noticeable side-effects.
In an imaginative attempt to keep it that way, I spend my 10 minutes of daily zapping assigning little shields to each of my healthy and valid heart, lung, bone, muscle, throat and skin cells.
I watch as the healthy cells, with shields over heads, deflect the harmful rays onto any cancerous neighbours.
And as any and every cancer cell is dramatically blasted into oblivion.
I’m not much for action scenes, but this one I enjoy.
