Radiation In Progress

I've now had 7 radiation treatments and so far it's been easy. The biggest pain is driving to La Jolla every day and getting childcare for Elise. But the treatments are quick and painless (so far). I'm already starting to experience some of the fatigue that can come along with radiation (or maybe I just have a 4 month old?).

They only radiate my left armpit and left chest. So they gave me four "prison tattoos" to mark the borders of the treatment area so that they radiate the same place every time.

Here is one of them...


  1. I hope the radiation treatments continue to go well. I hope you continue to have energy too. I can't believe all you've already been through. You have come through so much and I hope that soon enough this will all be a distant memory!

  2. glad to hear things are going well!!!! It has to be so tiring taking care of a 4mos old, driving to and from and going through all of this. Sending you hugs!
