Day 1 of Treament! I woke up nervous, still coming to grips with the reality of what is going on in my life. But as soon as we started treatment it felt really good to actually be doing something about "Bob" the tumor. Yes, he has a name. We considered other names, some of them not so pretty, but in the end just decided to go with something simple. To all you Bobs out there, sorry, this is no reflection on you!
I took three pills this morning after breakfast, had a radiation treatment at 2:00 and took three more pills after dinner. This will be the plan through July 16th. I did wear my "chemo sweat band" for style purposes (according to Ashley) and my "I am going to beat cancer" socks to radiation!
Please pray specifically that the medication and radiation will do exactly what they are supposed to do. Pray for protection of normal healthy cells and destruction of cancer cells. Pray for minimal side effects - you know what I'm talking about!
As you pray today, please pray for my mom. She fell leaving Ashley's graduation and broke her arm up close to her shoulder. Pray for healing and pain relief. When it rains it pours...
