Just Two More Left To Go!

I went for radiation in the morning.  #5 of 7 sessions.  Just two more left to go!
I asked at the radiation clinic how long I should use the ointment the nurse prescribed - the leaflet that came with it said to use for 14 days and I am close to that.  But I was told to use it for as long as the skin is peeling and the new skin underneath looks raw.  A whole bunch of skin peeled off, today, when I washed the area in the morning, so I guess I'll be using the ointment for a few more days.

Afterwards, we came home and had lunch.  Then, daughter went to run a couple of errands she needed to do.  She needed to get some groceries for herself for a potluck barbecue her friends are having on Saturday and a cashiers check for her rent, etc.  She ran an errand for me, too, while she was out and about.  I played on the computer a bit and then, later, took another long nap on the sofa!  I was tired after the radiation.

After I woke up, however, I had some energy and so, I did a load of laundry, did the dishes, took the trash and recycling out, cleared the dining table (and dusted and polished it, afterwards), washed the kitchen trash can, and did a bit of paperwork.  I still have a small stack of papers to deal with, tomorrow; mostly things to file, but also a couple of bills to pay.

Today, I decluttered a newspaper with an article about cancer that a friend had given to me and 3 old computer software disks:

How was your Thursday?


  1. My Thursday was fun - wedding anniversary. It is amazingly hot in England this week. Well done - only 2 treatments left! Hoping the ointment helps deal with the peeling. Is it hot where you are? and does that make your sKin worse? blessings xx

    1. Happy anniversary, Angela! Please give my best wishes to Bob, too. May you both enjoy many more happy anniversaries in the years to come.

      Actually, it has cooled down to highs in the upper 80s and low 90s, here. That's comfortable weather (with a fan on) for me. Hot for me is when it is in the upper 90s and 100+. :) I hope it soon cools down to where it feels comfortable for you.

  2. Almost all done! How exciting!

    Have a great day today, Bless :)

    1. Thank you, Nathalie. Yes, I'm counting the days, if you can't tell! :D

      Hope you have a lovely day, too.
