More of the Same

It's been a rainy day Monday in my world, but that's OK. I didn't have plans, anyway.

My Radiation Oncologist put me on a five day treatment "break." The condition of my skin (what is left of it) has deteriorated beyond what's acceptable for further treatment. I'm home with medications to ease the pain and promote healing. As has been the case throughout this ordeal, Harry is assuming household management and nursing care. The kids continue to be supportive of us. Mary is cooking dinner tomorrow night. She is a wonderful cook so it's a meal to look forward to. For dinner this evening Harry made German Apple Pancakes. Wonderful!!

There's really nothing current to write about and strolls down memory lane can get boring for everyone. On that note I believe I'll publish this post, take a pill, kiss Harry goodnight, and spend the next few hours hugging my pillow.

My best to everyone. Thanks for stopping by.

Your strolls down memory lane are NEVER boring. I feel for you and hope you feel better soon.
The prayers will continue.

I am wishing this all to be over soon....

You amaze me, your attitude, your commitment, just everything.

I am wishing (and praying) for a speedy end to all of the misery.

Hugs friend. Seriously. :)

It's hard to imagine radiation burns, but I have an idea after reading this. I hope your skin heals enough so you can get this over with. As Jamie said, you amaze me.
