Behind the Scene
Eye of the Tiger: An appropriate theme song for radiation on a Friday morning!
As of today, 35% of my radiation is complete! I had treatment #7 this morning and so far I’m doing very well. My skin is starting to turn light pink and get sensitive in the radiation field, but nothing too bad yet. I have a bit of fatigue setting in but it’s offset by the amazing buzz of energy I have from being alive! Each day is a victory – and oh how sweet victory is!
While I expect things to start getting more difficult by the end of next week, I’m ready.
I thought I’d share some behind the scenes photos as hopefully most of you will never see what radiation looks like.
This is the radiation machine. It rotates around my body and delivers targeted radiation as I fill my lungs with air and hold my breath allowing my heart and lungs to be out of the radiation field as much as possible.
This is an awesome view of my insides showing where a small part of my heart and lung will inevitably be in the radiation field.
Thank you for your continued support as I slowly approach the next low. I’m grateful it won’t be as low as the lows I’ve experienced already, and with all of you by my side, I know I’ve got this too!
Until next time! 💗
