Ouch

I have been lucky through most of my treatment to be relatively pain free. Tonight, however, my throat hurts very badly, and my neck and chest are pretty burned from the radiation. The skin is bright red, and itchy and very thin. I am putting burn cream on it every few hours now. Only a week and a half of radiation left!

Happy note:
Barbara will be her Wednesday night for a few days. I'm excited to see her!

I can't believe how quickly your treatment has gone. I'm sure it probably doesn't seem that fast to you! I just love hearing that you are doing so well. You are so strong and staying so positive. You have such an inner strength that I'm sure you didn't know you had, and that type of strength never ceases to amaze me. Keep up the positive attitude, and again...please let me know if you need anything!

Tracy,
I'm so proud of you for being so positive and hanging in there. Hopefully we can get together again soon and see what else you can taste. I haven't called you for a few days because I know it hurts you to talk and I'm sure you have people calling you all the time. You know I'm just a few minutes away if you need anything! You are on the count down now, wooooooooo hooooooo! and you get a break soon. Hang in there girley! Love ya!
