Yippee Skippy!

As Eddie says, "I AM ALL DONE". With radiation, that is. Yippee Skippy! My skin is tender and sore again, but now I know that it will feel better in a few days by using the soaks and the silvadine ointment. I gave the techs a thank you mandala (and forgot to get a picture) and told them I hope I never have to set foot in that place ever again, no offense, of course.

In other news, Eddie is back up to snuff - with an appetite and no fever. I'm still feeling low on energy and I plan to rest as much as possible today. Dad and I finished painting the white wedges on the Big Wheel - pics will be posted later, after it dries.

Other than feeling low energy (with chest congestion), my mood is good.

I need to remember that radiation does bring with it some fatigue. After nearly two months of daily radiation treatments (with breaks here and there), I guess I have a right to be tired.

Have a great week-end everyone! Will post photos of Eddie's party next week!

Hi Dee,
One idea that encouraged me as I dealt with post-radiation fatigue was that on-going fatigue reflects the on-going healing (on-going death of cancer cells, repair of injured non-cancer cells and clean-up of dead cells).
Have a good weekend.
With hope, Wendy
