16 down, 17 more to go

Wow, this going to Brewer everyday gets old. 50 miles round trip 5 days a week. $50 a week in gas. SUCKS. But it is almost over. I can't wait. I would like to go away for a weekend with the family when this is over.

I have got burns all over the left side of my chest, and on my back. On my back is exit radiation burns. They itch so bad. Trying not to scratch. Cornstarch and Aquaphor work well.

I still can't fathom that I have had breast cancer. Why me when I need to be there for my family and patients? I just don't get it. Doesn't make sense. But does anything ever make sense?

I have done some soul searching. I am really getting into crystal and reiki healing. I continue to use traditional medicine but using the earth's energy helps balance the healing. If  you want more information visit my website,

HUGS to everyone, Divine Crystal Blessings.

I am off for 2 days. Go back on Monday for next week of radiation. I gavestarted to burn a bit on the skin below where my left breastwas. It doesnt hurt but everyonce in a while it smarts. Esp under the armpit.

Radiation 7 Down, 26 more to go

Hello everyone. I know, I know. I should be sleeping, only I can't. I am full of energy. Just gave my son amini reiki treatment and he is now asleep and not coughing. He had been coughing since 12 midnight. He has started this thing where he won't take cough medicine. He has always been a good med taker. So, My hands were full--holding him. My intent and making the reiki symbols with my eyes and humming at same tind no soecific song, put him to sleep.

I have had 7 radiation treatments, have 26 more to go for a total of 33. My skin has not started burning yet. I feel like thre is an itch and can't reach it. Sometimes I feel like a prickly feeling but nothing is there. It definitely isn't as hard as the chemo.

My hair is starting to grow, my eyelashes and eyebrows came back. Troy was hoping that my hair would come back, RED. It didn't, dark BROWN! very dark brown. Oh well. It is very soft. Like baby hair! It feels really wierd.

I have to be up in 5.5 hrs. Since getting over my last chemo treatment, I definitely don't have to sleep as much. I can get up in 5 hrs and be ok, but before chemo i had to get at least 8 hrs sleep (right hunny? Right mom?) lol. So funny.

I will post some picks of my new hair tomorrow.

Love and Hugs to all
Especially My Pink Sisters!!!
