This is in the radiation waiting room. Love it.

Radiation is still going well.  I’ve been told to expect some fatigue but it hasn’t shown up yet.  I do have a lovely pink rectangle though.  It reminds of a PBS shape song L has been singing lately.  :)  (Bear with me, it’s just the way my mind rolls.)  Starting next week, I get what’s called a boost.  Right now I get radiation pretty much all over my upper left torso, but next week they’re going to concentrate on my scar area.  That’s where my cancer is most likely to recur.  The boost will also give the rest of my skin a break, giving it a chance to heal before the home stretch when we go back to irradiating the left side again.   Other than the pink rectangle, the only discomfort I’ve had is when skin touches skin.  Like where my armpit touches my side.  It’s uncomfortable and almost feels like it sticks together, but still nothing like some of the sunburns I’ve had in my life.  Here’s to hoping it won’t be.  :)
