Hi Sheila, Thank you for the nice words on my sparkpage. I am hanging in there. I start my radiation treatments tomorrow. 23, 25, 28, 30 & nov 1. then I'm DONE. But, it takes about 6 months to 2 years to heal from this. down the road you could get radiation phneumonia (different from regular phneumonia) your ribs could crack, the radiation kills the tumor but you have to wait for it to shrink and go away. that's the 6 months to 2 years healing process. You also can have swelling inside your body and in your throat. they gave me medicane to take 1/2 hour before each treatment to help with the swelling inside my body, their's so much more you can get but also might not get. These are things that can happen. now, the swelling does happen and you also get very tired and weak from each treatment and it gets worse as you get to the end of radiation. This is why I'm so scared of radiation. I have had a fear of radiation all m y life because I knew when people had to have radiation that meant the cancer will spread and you will die. I've been told different these past couple months, but I'm still scared. So, I will keep you and everyone else informed of whats going on ok? Thank you for your prayers and how much you care. SHER

I have a Spark Activity Tracker so I guess they give awards for walking around Walmart all night -- go figure. One night I did 9 miles. It varies, however, 3-4 miles sometimes 7 -9 miles. I come home pretty beat. But the activity is good for me. I do miss everyone a lot. I do think about all of you gals and will try to do better about staying connected. Last rotation we had double birthday party for my granddaughter Anna and daughter in law Jaime - which was fun but exhausting. Still doing my Ebay some as well.

Missing you all, emoticon emoticon emoticon
