YO!!! tomorrow the single digits of radiation starts!!

Today was 26 down and 9 to go! NINE LEFT!!!!!!!  YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(What a way to spend the summer – yikes!)

I also learned today when the cute Mrs. G came out of her last treatment that I get to ring a REALLY noisy bell!  The three-year old in me approves as I figure if God wanted me to be quiet, I would have been born a mute.  

Today my escort was my friend Jenny.  Jenny is amazing.  She is a wife, mother, friend, full-time lawyer in private practice and holds local elected office – I am as proud as the dickens of her because she is running for county commissioner this fall.  Jenny and her husband have been awesome friends to me over the years and her kids are among my favorites.  When you know women like her, you are inspired to be better.

(Yes Jenny, you know it’s true :<})

So onward and upward…one annoying thing is my breast is truly an ugly shade of almost neon red with little bumps that are almost like blisters – my skin hurts and is hot to the touch and lordy am I using the creams.

Nine more.  I can’t believe it.  Wow. Just think, soon you will get to hear me wax poetically about five years of tamoxifen…

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
