Speechless, Day #52

Fingers not really interested in typing right now, even my brain seems to be moving slower as I move into this next stage. I don’t usually think of myself as being short of words, but this appears to be one of those times.

Last week they fitted me for the radiation therapy. I also don’t think of myself as claustrophobic, but that process definitely took me to the limits of that. I had my mouth closed as they fitted me.  I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to open it, but I had my nose, so no worries… then they started pressing in on my nose! Yikes, we have a problem Houston! As they put me in the machine panic ensued. My team was great, working me through it and getting it finished.

Many of you have taken the time to write me notes, sharing your experiences and your prayers.  They mean a lot to me!  Thanks!

Next steps:

  1. First of 12 daily radiation treatments on Monday 10/9 4pm ending 10/24. Praying that my mask and I will get along!  Oh yes, praying for my medical team also!
  2. Referee season begins! 10/12
  3. Johns Hopkins 2nd Opinion, 10/13 11:00
  4. Rheumatologist Appointment, 10/18
