Radiation pictures, day 2 and brain chemo dr today

yesterday ended up being a great day.

I decided that although I was tired and laying on the couch sounded great, it would be better for me to get out and about a bit before radiation started.

Me and mom went shopping. I got 2 cute fedora style hats to wear because I am pretty sure I will have a bald spot again – Austin sun + bold spot = no good.

We went to eat at a place called The Daily Grill where we totally pigged out and I have a glass of wine…it was AMAZING!! Thanks to Marci and family for gift card to there.

Then home for a bit to nap.
Mom went and got Ian from camp and then too him on a date for ice cream and the pool – what a great BB he has…I don’t know how we would do this without her there.

Then Eric and I went to radiation.
It took longed than I expected, but they were being VERY precise..hey, I will take that!

Here is the machine I am in…yes strapped down with all those layers of mesh to ensure I don’t move my at ALL.

I did ok until 1/2 way through then I had to request a 2nd dose of anxiety medicine because I was starting freaking from the pressure of the mask that was giving me a HUGE headache.

Today I go see Dr. G – my brain oncologist in the morning
2nd radiation treatment this afternoon

Please pray radiation goes smooth today and my doctors have a plan for me  tomorrow.
