Week Four and Five

Radiation has been flying right along week 4 and 5 are now completed.

I am still turning reddish purple but only one small crack in the skin so far. It is very irritating and starting to get itchy. I am not sure what is worse under my arm or my neck both are in the creases of the skin.

I have 9 treatments left only one full radiation and the other 8 are targeted at where the tumor was at. They told me the burn areas will start healing while this is going on.

My bone scan results were a bit odd and I have not gotten to talk to my oncologist yet.

I had one 10 years ago and had a decrease of 13.4% of the Axial Lumbar.The left femoral neck had an increase of 7.8%. Now how did that happen?

Impression stated: Osteopenia of the lumbar spine. The way I understand this it means the step before Osteoporosis but not bad enough to be diagnosed Osteoporosis.

Calcium and exercise should improve this and once my burns are healed I will get back on track with that. At this time sweat really irritates the burn areas.

I have been able to do a little photography but just have to limit the sun exposure.

I wanted to say a special thank you to my family and friends that have been there for me through this whole ordeal.

I am still fighting like a girl.
