The Journey continues …

Well the first phase of the journey is over: yesterday was the 33rd and final radiation treatment. I apologize for not posting sooner but the last three treatments were perhaps the most difficult and all I have wanted to do is sleep.

The wonderful radiation team watched and cheered me on as I, with Laurent beside me, rang that bell to celebrate my final treatment. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to upload the video but here are two photos:

The mask that I wore for each treatment. It basically immobilize my head and held the reference points for the radiation.

All set to ring that bell with Laurent at my side as he’s been for the past 44 years.

Time to regroup and see what I can do about gaining some weight. It may be a bit before I post another update but once again thank you for your love, thoughts, prayers, and support.

  1. My darling, you have been through hell and will rebound like a Phoenix rising from the ashes!!! Just a thought… I’ve managed to put lots of weight on both of my former husbands over the years… want me to give it a try?? I LOVE YOU!! You have got this, sweetheart!! ❤️❤️

  2. Take care, my friends. After the resting, may both of you enjoy the many and various delights of the season.

  3. Jean-Paul and I are thrilled for you. Honestly, we heard the bell just as if we were there. Now, the time has come for you to rest and build your strength. Wishing you tons of good health from here on. Huge hugs to you and Laurent. May you celebrate many more years of togetherness. ❤

  4. Thanks for sharing this important moment in your recovery. Wishing you the very best moving forward.

  5. I hope they heard that bell all over the Island! Here’s to gaining weight and progressing further along your Journey to Wellness! That radiation mask looks like a piece of modern art.

  6. Hooray for the bell!

    That mask looks like a prop from a 1980s science fiction movie.

  7. Wishing you a quick and complete recovery. May this last round of radiation reaction pass quickly. You’re looking surprisingly good after all that hell you’ve been through. Let the healing begin.
