Radiation takes only 15 minutes a day. I did have another consultation with the doctor to check on how I’m holding up.
There’s not a whole lot to report yet. Other residents of the Lodge say that as time goes on the effects of radiation accumulate and you feel more drained and start to have stronger side effects.
So far, I still feel good, and every day that I do, I count as a real blessing, helping me on the way to getting through the whole thing.
Spring is trying to break out, and I took a long walk this afternoon. The warmth and sunshine felt invigorating.
This evening at supper another group volunteered to cook us dinner. I’m getting spoiled, and losing too much weight has not been a problem for me yet.
We also welcomed back the folks who returned from a weekend at home, and some of the new people who are just arriving and settling in to begin their treatments.
