I’ve just completed day 30 of my return to good health which means only three more radiation sessions left. The last one will be on Monday the 21st. The effects of the radiation will continue for as long as 2 weeks. I was told today that the sessions were the most intensive they give. I can believe it.
After that comes the waiting game. The effects of the radiation will continue for as long as 2 weeks. It will be up to 12 weeks before a CATSCAN will determine what the outcome is. It’s going to be a long wait. In the meantime I have to try and make up for the weight I have lost which will be a major challenge.
Thank you for your thoughts, prayers, messages of love and support. That and the incredible dedication of Laurent during all of this have kept me going. It has been as much a struggle for him as for me.
