My vacation is next week. We were supposed to travel to Ohio to see these precious babes
but since I have to start radiation therapy tomorrow afternoon we will not be able to make it. Starting tomorrow at 3:40pm and for every day except the weekends through July 31st I will have radiation to my nose where the cancer is. Oddly enough I am not scared at all. I feel that it is in the Lord's hands and he has done a pretty good job of looking out after me for 50 years so why should this be any different?
I don't think the treatments are going to effect me other than an area of the nose that will be similar to a sunburn. At least that is what I am hoping for. But whatever it is I am up to the challenge. I am a little ticked about one thing though. Recently I purchased a cancer policy through AFLAC. The bad news is that this cancer was diagnosed during the 30 day waiting period. The good news of course is that the cancer is treatable. Not to mention that my children will not have to worry about the same for them as it is not hereditary. I will buy a brand new bottle of SPF50 today and keep it all over my face during this time. Actually I will probably use it daily from now on. I have been using a face cream w/SPF15 but I need to move up a bit.
