I had a different radiation treatment today. They usually do a treatment on each breast (in two different spots), but now that I am down to the final 5, they are just focusing on the spot where they removed the cancerous lump. It is such a relief to know that my armpits are done getting fried, and also, most of my chest. The final 5 treatments will be focused in a very specific spot and they are going to get it good. I'm pretty sure that spot is going to get the 1-2 punch.
My energy level is down, down, down and I am super tired. In spite of that fact, I am THRILLED to be almost done. 4 more baby! (and then of course a 2 week after burn).
My goal of finishing The Book of Mormon in 45 days is almost complete. In case you are confused--
here is an explanation from an earlier post...
The night before I started radiation, I was in bed thinking about how I didn't want to start radiation. I was dreading it. I was thinking about ways to make it a positive 45 days instead of negative. The thought came into my head that I should read The Book of Mormon in 45 days. I figured out that I would have to read 12 pages a day. I well underway and will probably end up finishing the book before I'm done with radiation. It's been a good experience. It just seems like things flow and are easier to understand when you read more than one chapter at a time.
I'm happy to say that in 6 more days, I will have it done. It's been a great experience.

I rarely wear the "over the shoulder boulder holder" because it rubs in all the wrong areas. I mostly stay home or wear a coat. If I can't wear a coat (like if I'm going to church) I put the brazier on, and deal with it. Ouch.
I am told that it will continue to burn for a couple weeks after radiation is complete. Super. The last treatment will be on February 27th, and it can't come soon enough.
