A Welcoming Monster!
The day after returning from my wonderfully distracting trip to California, it was time to get back to business.
Yesterday I went for my "dry run" appointment before starting radiation.
This Linear Accelerator looks like a monster, opening its arms to welcome me. I wonder if I would have how this machine would have appeared to me, had it not been decorated?
This funny thing will be delivering high energy x-rays to destroy any cancer cells, that think they have a right to still be in my body! 3 wonderful technicians worked away, adjusting me, taking pictures, comparing scans and... decorating me!
"I'm just drawing on you." said one. "These are some stickers." Said another. I just stared up at the ceiling looking at the Halloween decor that was hanging from the ceiling. I had the feeling they might be drawing pumpkins and attaching ghosts stickers to my skin.
Moments later, I was done and I wrapped myself in the gown and headed past the small line up of "gowned" patients to the dressing room.
I put on my blouse and laughed. I know these marks are important to make sure they target the proper places. But someone should have warned me about wearing a scoop necked blouse. I looked pretty silly walking out.
I'm just glad my 6.5 weeks of radiation starts in October and not sweltering, June. I will be paying special attention to my shirts for a while!
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast CANCER and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. This time it was the invasion of COVID and it affected every person. I ranted for a year, until I got my COVID vaccine in March 2021.
CORONARY Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was my hubby Don, who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
