As Eddie and I pulled ourselves together in order to leave on time this morning, I feared I was loosing steam. Even with multiple alarms, getting up and out of the house by 6:15am was proving far more challenging by the day.
The drive, which is something I viewed as just something that had to be, was getting old. Leaving later wasn’t helfpful. Actually, it only made it more difficult with a lot more people on road and increased stop and go traffic.
We arrived just after 8am. It was cold in the waiting room. Tomorrow I’ll have to forgo the shorts and bring a sweater.
I dosed off during the treatment. It wasn’t a deep sleep, but a rest nonetheless. In my sleepy haze I could almost feel the radiation beams moving up and over my face from left to right and back again. I relaxed as the machine hummed its way up and over. Up and over.
After the treatment we went upstairs to meet with Dr. Kleinberg. He confirmed the increased number of treatments from 25 to 32 and reaffirmed I’d finish this week leaving the final four treatments for the last week of June.
I napped in the car on the way home.
