Today I completed my second week of radiation. Other than having one nicely bronzed breast (that no one will see), everything seems to be going well. I meet with Dr. Shimizu every Monday, just to give a status report. Other than one day when I felt kind of wiped out, I’ve been feeling good. Every day after radiation, I come home and take Charlie for a 3 mile walk. When I told this to the doctor, he seemed kind of surprised. I told him, I was going to keep it up until I didn’t feel like I could.
This week they had a service dog in the gowned waiting area. His name was Boomer and he was an English Yellow Lab. They are there every Monday. Next Monday will be Amber.
I found out this week as well that after every 5 treatments I get an x-ray. It’s done by the same machine that zaps me. This next week I have to get another CAT scan and plan for my boost treatments. I thought my last week of treatment was when I got the boosts but apparently it gets done in the middle as well.
I finally received my payment from disability. It only took a month.
