First ZAP done!

Well, that first radiation treatment went smoothly. It really is painless and easy, other than the fact that one of my arms went to sleep because you lie still for awhile. And the picture on the ceiling of a sky with clouds and trees waving in the breeze is very calming and restful. They really should put some birds flying around, I think. And then add some bird songs, etc. to make it authentic. OK - just trying to create some more atmosphere if I'm going to be in the same room for 24 additional times!
Thank you for your prayers - I was apprehensive this morning just because this was an unknown - now I know what it is like and it's not claustrophobic at all. That's a very good thing because I don't like that closed in feeling.
The pain was in my legs yesterday but today has been another good day so far. Yeah! I'm starting to feel like doing a little more. Yesterday I even baked almond squares and rhubarb muffins!

Continuing on...


  1. Many blessings so glad to hear things went well..i will get my paint brush and head right over and put a few sweet birds on that ceiling for you ...if only i could!!!! Thinking of you lots...xoxox
