Double radiation day



Today is a double radiation session day. 10:30 am and 4:20 pm. Two radiation treatments because it's a holiday week and they won’t be open on Christmas Day.

I don't like that "magic mouthwash" stuff and I don't like taking OxyContin because that stuff screws you up.

I hope they have raspberry flavor. That’s my favorite.
