countdown

Four days until my first radiation treatment. The usual array of feelings that come with not knowing how I am going to be with this part of treatment, will I be really fatigued? Will I need the help of my parents again, like I did chemotherapy? Always some uncertainty. I am planning to use visualization during radiation to imagine healing rays entering my body. Honestly, though I think the rigeur of attending the hospital daily for four weeks play a day is the tiring part. Also an emotional week related to a cancer death of a much admired public figure here in Canada. I already wrote about that on my more active blog (see profile).
