Radiation = books on tape. The silver lining.

Apparently I am not posting enough and have been scolded for it.

I am good. Today was my 9th radiation treatment; only 25 more to go. I am a little red in the area and tender, with occasional twinges of pain in the actual surgery area, but Advil helps. I use aloe and a lotion made to help burns 2 or 3 times a day to help keep my skin in as good condition as long as possible. I can’t stand the smell, but it is a small price to pay.

Other than driving downtown and back to my oncologist’s office mainly during morning traffic, the hardest part has been figuring out the schedule for Jackson as my appointment times the first 2 weeks have been haphazard. I am so thankful for the people in our life who are helping us out. Showing up at my house at 7 am to watch Jackson, that is love.

The only good part about driving back and forth every day is that I am enjoying books on tape. If anyone is looking for fast paced novels, check out James Rollin’s SIGMA series. I try to play them when I go places with Jackson and he is not as fond of them and just keeps asking for Nemo.

The most exciting thing going on at the moment is Jackson’s 2nd birthday on Sunday. How fast the time goes!
