Radiation Hell is Over!


I was very anxious to finish my last day of Radiation Treatment. It's been a long exhausting week, a long six weeks. I am so happy that it's over.  

My mouth hasn't gotten any better. I pick at food, but barely eat. Soup is my favorite new friend. I lost a lot of weight and Paul keeps telling me that I am too skinny. I know once the side effects subside I will be eating again. I am going to try a milkshake later. The last time I did, I got super sick from the milk. I don't eat dairy and it was rough on my body. 

I haven't been driving and usually spend most of my day in bed. The facial nerve pain and headaches are constant and if my stomach is empty it's hard to keep medicine down. I am so sick of being doped up on pain killers.  I am so sick over being hungry all the time. 

Blogging is making me dizzy. I am going to call it a day. 

Thank you everyone. 
I will blog more soon.

Thanks for the update.

What an accomplishment! Isn't it funny that people get praise and fame for doing things a thousand million times easier than what you've just done. You are a Super Hero from Another Universe.

Rest. Gather your strength in your own good time. Get better.

Have Paul makes you some green smoothies! If you need me just tell me and I'll come. I love you.

Hooray it's over! The worst is behind you now. You are indeed a SuperHero!
Maybe a smoothie that is fruit based? With protein added to help you gain strength.
I'm praying for you to get your health back, xo
