Check out this beautiful morning we woke up to on Wednesday – and I’ve something to celebrate. Yesterday was my final day for radiation treatment.
Pretty colours in the morning sky
Off we went for the 120km round trip journey for 16 days of treatment each weekday. Thank goodness we won’t be doing that every day again, and I was more than happy to hand my blue gown back. I have to say that the staff were marvellous, very helpful and caring, enquiring how I was faring every day and checking on side effects on my skin. I have been warned that the radiation effects will still be happening even though treatment is finished and that “things will get worse before they get better”. But armed with creams to apply, and a district nurse calling around, I’m sure my symptoms will gradually ease.
My last day
We had a lunch out to celebrate – I chose chicken breast in filo pastry, and Robin had tender lamb cutlets. Both meals were delicious, as we expected.
Waiting for our celebration lunch to arrive
With such a lot going on this week, I decided not to roll the dice once more. And with all my recent finishes lately, my List of Six badly needs updating. But never fear, there are plenty of other UFOs waiting in the wings ready to be put on the list.
