Day one has come and gone.
On Monday's all radiation patients meet one on one with their radiologist -
mine is on vacation, so I met with his colleague.
Not much to discuss, given this was my first day.
No need to check my skin for signs of burning,
no questions I could think of.
He was nice and had a few suggestions to help
keep my inflammation levels down.
I felt very tired as I waited for him, reading,
and I imagined a sensation of burning all along my rib cage.
It felt like I'd been burned,
but I knew it was my mind creating the sensation.
I stopped at a grocery store on the way back to my hotel room,
and picked up a few things to make salad in my room.
I've got a small frig and microwave.
I brought a toaster oven and my own coffee maker :)
a few comforts from home.
Everyone here is very friendly
and caring - and my room is quite comfy.
I am very fortunate to be able to stay here,
close to the hospital during treatment,
while my amazing husband takes care of our home,
pets and over sees the attic renovation.
I'll join him at home on weekends,
unless the renovation scene becomes too much!!
Then he can come for a swim here!
oh so gratefully yours,
