5 more

I only have 5 more radiation treatments. This time next week I will be done with my treatments! Hard to believe.

5 seems like a small number but it is harder and harder each day to be there by 8am. The fatigue is setting in and the skin is peeling, raw and very painful. Sleeping, sitting, and overall moving because the skin rubs are all uncomfortable.

Radiation was going pretty well until 4 weeks into it. This last 2 weeks has been a bit of a chore. I've just realized how much my body has been through in 9 months, it's just tired!

5 more. I know with every day I get closer to being finished with treatment. I will continue with hormonal therapy which is a drug I will take for 5-10 years.

Thanks for all my cheerleaders!
