The Terminator

So I finally had my first radiation session last week Wednesday.  It was fairly uneventful having to lie there for 15 minutes while the machine buzzes around me.

My father-in-law has aptly named the machine “The Terinator”- and I suppose that is exacty what it is.  It is in fact what kills the cancer.

I was supposed to have a session on Thursdy and Friday as well but due to equipment failure, I was only able to have the next session on Monday.

I am now 7 sessions in.  I can definitely feel a difference in my throat.  It is little tender and I feel like I have a few swollen glands.  23 Sesions to go.  It is going to be hard.

I am starting to fear the terminator.  I manage to put a big smile on my face as I walk into the chamber, but I know this is what is going to cause me much pain in the weeks to come.

It is fight I need to psych myself up for.  One which I am struggling with at the moment.
