Lilo is down to four radiation treatments left. Honestly I think it's harder on me than it is on her at this point, because I'm the one who has to get up at 5:00 am, leave at 6:00 am and fight traffic to get there. She sleeps on the way, during the procedure and on the way back.
The thing about radiation is that side effects, if there are any, usually show up after the treatment is completed. From what I understand, the side effects are usually skin-related and are redness, swelling and possible moistness. Today the tech asked me if she had been bothered by her treatment area because it was getting red. She has not seemed like it bothers her, so we'll just have to see. For the most part she comes home, eats and then spends the day like she would if she wasn't getting treatments.
I think I did pretty well in November. Yes, I forgot a couple of days, but I think I did well considering how long it had been.
