Its been 2 weeks of treatments. So far, so good. There have not been any noticeable side effects up to this point. I am attributing this to the fact that each day before I leave I click this button. Try it. It really works. Believe me. I am an expert on pushing people’s buttons!
Everything is going as planned. The time is going by fairly quickly. 2 out of 5 weeks of treatments are done. Towards the last week of treatments the radiation doctor will contact the surgeon to figure out when to schedule the surgery. After 4-5 weeks break between radiation and surgery to allow the skin and everything around the knee to heal that would put the surgery date around the end of April or early May. Its still a long way off before I’m out of the woods but I’m feeling like it will go well. Being patient with the whole thing still the hardest part. It seemed like I waited so long to get started with radiation. Still 3 more weeks til that’s done. Then I have to wait 4-5 weeks to have the surgery done. Then who knows how long recovery will be. It’s going to be an extensive surgery. Can’t we just fast forward this to see how it turns out? I would flip to the last chapter to read the ending but the other thing I found this week is I need reading glasses! All of the sudden I noticed I can’t see things when I hold them close to my eyes. After a trip to the eye doctor I’m now WAITING for new glasses to arrive…ain’t life grand?
That’s looking like it’s going to be my only option soon.
Thanks to everyone again for all the support and calls and cards. I really appreciate all the support.
