Today was supposed to be Day One…the first day I was to receive radiation treatments to get rid of any lingering cancerous cells that might be floating around in my abdomen. Turns out the folks at Memorial Hospitals Cancer Center had a different plan. They wanted to take a few more pictures and measurements to make sure that they irradiate the correct area and not irradiate things that don’t react well to radiation. Namely, they wanted to make sure they’re not zapping my kidneys. I appreciate their attention to detail.
So…tomorrow, August 3rd is actually the day that the treatment officially starts. At least that’s what they told me today.
On a sad note, my best friend lost a friend and co-worker to cancer over the weekend. May God give her family peace and comfort during this difficult time.
