… khallas, finito, sephelile, klaar, finished!!
I’d be kidding myself if I said the last three weeks have been a walk in the park … in all honesty, this treatment is probably the toughest thing I have undergone since my diagnosis in 2014.
If you get tired, learn to rest, not quit (#SayQuotable)
Sometimes, when life is moving forward normally it’s almost easy to forget that I have a terminal illness but then, at times like these, I realise how sick I really am.
I may be a little broken and battered but I am still standing!
It’s going to take around three weeks for the side effects to clear and I am really looking forward getting back to normal and life pre-steroids.
My radiation oncologist is confident that the treatment will be successful but we will only know how successful in six to eight weeks when I have another brain MRI. I’m thinking nothing but positive thoughts and not letting any scanxiety sneak in.
A big thank you needs to be said to the lovely Amanda, Jo and Raxa for getting me through the last three weeks, you ladies rock and I couldn’t have done it with out you.
There are a few photos at the end of this post to give you an idea of what radiation is all about.
I’m actually quite disappointed that I am not showing any signs of developing super powers yet … maybe they will still come.
Onwards and upwards xx
