Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

Definitely counting down.

My skin is getting better.

The goopy dressings are helping, and I'm now on a very altered radiation therapy regiment that is just focusing on the scar area. They call it the "booster." The radiation literally takes only a minute. Actually, it takes longer to set me up than the actual radiation!

The tech said that although it seems ridiculous to come out here for something so short, it's really important. I often wonder why radiating the scar is so important, but I don't ask, because I really don't care. Just do it, and be done with it!

I have 3 more. Only 3! Unless of course, they're joking. Because my last zap is on April Fool's Day!

Love & hugs!

Despite the sense of humor some nurses may have (of which I know nothing about), they wouldn't joke about that!

Only 3, woo hoo.

Uno, dos, tres! (I'm watching Dora right now)

Didn't you start on Valentine's Day - they have chose odd dates for you.

So happy it is somewhat almost over. Which mile would this be?

I'm so excited this is almost over for you and you can focus on healing.

I'm glad you're almost done.
