Today was my last radiation session; today was a good day

Yesterday was my last chemo bag and today was my last radiation session. It was brutal, but they tell me it'll work. So for the next six weeks I do nothing but recuperate. Then they’ll do a PT scan and I'm sure it will be clear. I’ve sent an e-mail to my doctor at The Klinik in Germany to fill her in on my situation. She’ll let me know when to come over to The Klinik for treatment for the side effects of the radiation. I know one of the treatments is bathing in water mixed with half a cup to a cup of sea salt and a half a cup to a cup of baking soda. This helps draw the radiation out of your body.

Today was a good day. I saw Farrah and Alana Stewart at the doctors’. Farrah's going to go back to Germany for some treatment, too. And to top off my day, my niece Kate came over to see me. We spent about an hour together. I don't get to see her much, so this was wonderful for me. It's not even six o'clock and I'm exhausted, so I'm going to bed. Goodnight.


  1. I was hoping for a one year update today. There is a lot to think back on I would imagine. Also, I've wondered when you get your catheter port out after one year. You must also be due for a scan soon.
    God bless.
