mckenna, that is a lot of weight - congratulations. (sissors - ha ha, I like it).
Neeners, good luck tomorrow! It will be fine, and we will be here to hear all about it
Congratulations to your daughter Annie!

I hear you on the x-rays - but I guess since the actual radiation amount is so small compared to what we are getting every day, I have thought I prefer that to getting too much radiation to any place outside of the breast area during treatment. I am terrified of lung problems (since I am a runner) ... originally, only 1 cm of lung is supposed to be in the field (I made the tech show me after my original CT scan!), and I would prefer this to be the case (or even less)! I am not really sure how the x-ray helps determine scatter field though, I am going to ask on Tuesday when I see my RO.
My breast is finally looking red, and my nipple is sore, but I really can't complain, nothing is purple or black (although I actually like the color purple, I would prefer my breast stay its boring beige color ).
Good luck next week ladies ... my hope for you is on time appointments, no baked breasts (with gravy), privacy at work/home/on the radiation table, and lots of support from the May/June RADs group!!
