“It’s a Dot” . . . Update

Standard

Yesterday was my last “full” treatment. So that ends the original 5 week treatment. NOOOOO it has NOT gone by fast – LOL. I was diagnosed just 3 months ago and it seems like it’s been 6 months.

I am sunburned and tired, but do feel pretty good, just feeling crazy emotional (like more than just crying at Hallmark commercials). I don’t feel depressed,  just, maybe a little overwhelmed, maybe everything this summer is just catching up with me, maybe since this treatment is coming to a close it’s kind of back in my face again and moving to the next treatment (so if we talk over the phone or in person – don’t take it personally if I start crying . . LOL). I’ll have to meet with the medical oncologist to discuss an oral medication. I’m thinking my body is just a little tired, physically and emotionally. Ready to be done with radiation and driving downtown everyday.

Today is the first of my 5 day “boost” treatments. The “boost” treatments concentrate on the area where the lumpectomy was done. The radiation dose is different than the full treatment. This dose will be quicker and doesn’t penetrate very deep into my skin. It is concentrated to the incision location only, so the rest of my skin should start healing.

It’s the last day of “this” summer & I am seeing light at the end of the tunnel. Yessssssssssssssssssss!
