OTMom and FaceForward - It really stinks that the weather is playing such havoc with your final day(s) of treatment! I'm pretty sure I would be in tears if this was happening to me! PLEASE keep us posted! FaceForward - maybe it is a blessing in disguise for you though. Sounds like your skin could use the rest.
Jen2Mom - I can't imagine our immune systems aren't compromised during radiation treatment. I would certainly be wearing a mask at home and sanitizing constantly in your situation, especially with it being both your husband and daughter. And I would consider it at school as well if they would allow it. That's a heck of alot of crud to be around! Praying you stay well through it!
Mymomsgirl and Kerlyn - you are both so close to the finish line as well! I am glad you all aren't dealing with weather issues!
Piksie - you have a lot on your plate, going through this cancer journey along with having active boys. Hope you will listen to your body and rest when needed - even at work. :0) My husband and I will be visiting his family in San Diego the week after I finish rads. This trip was planned long before I knew the dates of radiation treatment. Kind of wish it was a bit later in the spring, but hopefully I will feel good and not be too tired or sore.
Vivian4 - my most uncomfortable area is my sentinel node scar at my armpit. It is the most red and that's where my zingers tend to hit. I had joint pain in my left thumb but that has gotten better as I have gone through treatment. I think our bodies are dealing with a lot and each of us react differently, some more than others - and there really isn't a "normal". Just be gentle with yourself, mentally and physically during this time. We are all here to support each other!
Santabarbarian - I'm glad your first treatment went so well!
Beach5 - welcome and so sorry you are dealing with mouth ulcers.
Egregious - love that you continue to check in on those of us going through February radiation! Thanks for your encouragement!
Hang in there everyone!
