Second radiation treatment

06 January 2009

Off to the next radiation treatment shortly. I've had a productive morning putting all of my appointments into the computer and letting my fingers go cold. It's somewhere between 0 and -6 today apparently. Cracking. Dutchcloggie bought me a nice blanket for Christmas (with sleeves - image search for 'Slanket' if you're interested) but I haven't managed to take it out of its bag this morning. I don't know why I'm bitching about being cold when I have a vest, shirt, jumper AND available blanket and heating. COME ON JD - SORT IT OUT!!!!!

There's only 30 radiation sessions and 3 review sessions so it's not all that bad. I woke up with a headache this morning but I'm not sure how much of that was my brain assuming that because I had been zapped yesterday that I should have a headache today. Silly brain. Maybe it is a caffeine deficiency? Coffee time!!!

Has anyone else cut out coffee and tea whilst taking steroids? I thought about it but swiftly dismissed the idea as I enjoy my coffee too much. Anyone have any thoughts?

Keep the caffeine up: don't deprive yourself of anything until you are through the entire programme. And probably not even then.

How you doin'? How is she handling the sessions, M? You said "each day": does that mean Sat and Sun, too?
