Quick Jab to the Right! Radiation Kicks In (with the emphasis on 'kick'!)
Posted Sep 07 2008 7:56pm
Yesterday I went to my radiation appointment. Up until that point it had been a stupendous day! I felt fantastic and my attitude and positivity level were both at full peak. Yes!
Then I got on that table and crash, boom, pow -- !! However, I am still standing! I can see now that this is definitely going to be a battle between my will and the machines. However, I intend to win!
At work this morning, all is well, and several encouraging email messages from Joe, Carole, Elizabeth, Maribeth -- a card from Tish telling me to 'kick butt' -- wow. I am so blessed.
More radiation to come this afternoon, but today is Wednesday, and so today and then 2 more days before my body gets a rest this weekend. The chemo is not affecting me at all, so that's a real blessing. After today I have 28 days left. That is definitely doable.
The photo above is a building at Chaco Canyon, Indian Ruins in New Mexico, which I visited last year. It's been standing for hundreds of years, overcoming all the elements that would work to overcome it and destroy it.
That building is still standing. So am I. Bring it on!
