I never, ever intended to write anything preachy on my blog, but the anger has gotten to me. Cancer is a down-home, corn-fed bitch! Do EVERYTHING humanly possible to prevent getting cancer: don’t smoke, wear sunblock, eat well, exercise, know your family history, get a good doctor and don’t be afraid to ask a lot of questions, get regular physical exams, etc. And when you’ve done all this and still you get dealt a crappy hand…at least your body will be ready to fight back.
Radiation treatment has been postponed another week (to start 2/18). My doctor called on Saturday to tell me they had been working on the treatment plan but they need more time; the amount of radiation my spinal cord can be exposed to before it sustains damage is their number one priority so I guess it’s good that they are taking their time to make sure they plan it right.
Thanks again for the continued well-wishes, prayers, cards, dinners, etc. I still need all of them like you just can’t imagine.
lots of love,
