I have two more radiations left. Unfortunately, I have a bad attitude about this. As much as I’ve struggled with this part of my treatment, I’m NOT looking forward to having it be over. You see, I’ve managed to avoid thinking much about my surgery because it wasn’t going to happen until AFTER radiation.
Tuesday starts the part of this journey I’ve been thinking of as AFTER radiation.
When people tell me how happy they are for me that on Tuesday I’ll be done with radiation, I’m not nearly as cheery as they think I should be. It’s hard to be excited about something you’re really dreading, you know? Even though my surgery isn’t for two more weeks AFTER radiation, I’m already getting anxious about it. Really anxious.
So let’s talk about pictures instead. Tomorrow I’ll post pictures of the First Communicants retreat morning yesterday… it was great. But today I’ve got a few other new things to show you.
Sara found me a four leaf clover. I don’t know how she finds them all the time… she walks Gus (her dog) and somehow manages to just see them. I don’t even think she crawls around looking… she spots them from something like five feet eight inches off the ground. But anyway, she thought I could use one.
Another one of my friends thought George could use a pair of shoes, so she MADE him some. I’m not kidding. She SEWED him real shoes. He’s absolutely fascinated with them… he’s not figured out how to take them off yet, but when he does, he’s going to be the happiest one year old around 🙂
Meanwhile, I’m happy that my hair is growing back.
Except I wanted it to come back red and curly, and I think it’s looking very dark brown and really straight. I thought for a while that my eyebrows were never going to grow, but all of a sudden they popped out:
You can even see little tiny eyelashes, too. I was worried they were never going to grow back either.
I think perhaps my worries about my upcoming surgery are a little more rational than my fear that my eyelashes were’t going to come back. But it’s OK, my surgery isn’t until AFTER radiation….
