Do a little more each day than you think you possible can!

Wow! What a weekend we had. It was so wonderful to get to spend time with family and friends.  It is so nice to have everyone at one place so I can see my family!!  After all the party's were over I got to hang out with my one of my favorite crew...I just love them! I think they are used to seeing me with no hair which makes me happy because my wig gets so hot!

Great news from my doctor yesterday...Friday is my LAST treatment!!!!!!! I will have 4 larger doses of radiation on the 3 most troubled spots...my pituitary gland, my mid back and lower back. There is a tumor that is near my tailbone that he feels the radiation has affected, which is causing me all the pain. He said he is happy I am showing pains because it is a sign the radiation is working. Lucky me to not be able to sit! The side effects with the pituitary gland are short term memory loss, blurred or double vision. He referred to my mid back region as the "scary spot". Hopefully, all the tumors will be eliminated!!

Today was probably the worst radiation treatment I had. They had to reimage and draw new lines on me that took over an hour. I had to lay still with the mask on, feet bound together and not move. I started to have a small panic attack and cry! Thank goodness that was the last of that! They said tomorrow will be a normal treatment.

I will still have to wait until march 25 for the rescan before we know any results. It will be nice to get some normalcy back in the next month and not be driving to pgh everyday! 

Thank you all again for the love and support. It makes me so happy when I see pics of the tee shirts on Facebook and all the smiles. You all are truly wonderful!
