Radiation, Week 5
Tuesday, April 09, 2013
I have now got to the point where parts of me look really nice and burnt-- including the part of my neck where the seatbelt rubs. Now, have a moleskin covering. The doctor says it doesn't look like it will blister this week, so we are good to go. Next week's treatment doesn't include most of the burnt areas, so just more days. It is still a puzzling thing. First, because I was originally there as a melanoma patient 12 years ago, so doing anything that burns just goes against everything else I've been doing. But more, because every time I go, he looks at my skin, and says that is exactly what we like to see. Which might bake sense, but since we are now treating an internal problem, am not sure how the degree of outside crispiness is a good indicator.
Time to get off to work. Grades are due on Friday, so students should be inspired.
