In Between Time

July 06, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

It's been four weeks since the last chemotherapy treatment and it's another 9 days until radiation treatments begin. Today, I certainly feel caught in time between chemo and radiation. I don't know if that contributed to my blue day or not. I felt emotionally and physically exhausted. Judy and I walked down to Concord Road and back, so I got to climb the ridge twice. I cannot keep up with her. I have to climb slowly, and catch my breath. I do feel like my energy is slowly returning, just not as quickly as I would like. I'm ready but me body is not.

Last Friday I had my radiation simulation, and now I have a black cross marked on my chest and a line below my navel and one on my sternum and a cross under each arm. An x-ray will be taken as I begin each session so that the doctor and technicians can confirm that I am in the same exact position for each treatment. The treatments begin July 14, so I won't finish in July, and the final treatments will be in August.

The cancer treatments began four months ago and I still have another month of treatments. A new phase will begin soon, but for now I'm in between.
