I'm so excited that I finished my radiation treatments today! I have all the normal genital inflamation (burns) and some raw skin areas but overall, I'm ok. I was so scared when treatment began but I want everyone to know, this is doable. I've taken two heavy pain pills along the way just to take the edge off..one on Fri one week and one on Sat the next week because of a full week of rad treatments. I could have probably taken more but I also was cautious of constipation and didn't want to over do it. I have a week or so before I start healing but I'm confident with God's continued grace that I'll be just fine. My counts are a little low but still ok enough where I don't need shots.
I feel such a release and now I can start thinking about Christmas and decorating and gifts and family and food and church events and..well, you get the point. hehe.
Thanks everyone for your prayers and for the positive words along the way!!
