Radiation Preparation

This morning first thing I went back to the hospital with my brother for a radiation preparation appointment. They marked my body so they know exactly where to do the radiation and took some pictures to make sure they are accurate. What an exact science this radiation is! My first radiation treatment will be next week Wednesday at 2:36 p.m. (!) and will go on for 25 days. If all goes well and smoothly, the Lord willing, I will have my last radiation treatment on Wed., July 29.
I did go to our family celebration yesterday and I thoroughly enjoyed just being at Mom and Dad's with everyone and laying back and taking in the time together. Family is the best and I just love you all so much! It was cosy and comfortable, and I was so glad to be out of the hospital and able to watch hummingbirds chase each other away from the feeder. Now why would they do that?
The rest of today I just read, and slept, and read, and slept. I am happy to be feeling as well as I do with no sign of infection and minimal nausea. I am tired and though the pain is still present, it is controllable and hopefully will soon be gone.
My sister, Audrey, goes for chemo round #2 tomorrow. I will pray that all goes well for you, Audrey. Much strength to you, girl!

Love, Sandra
