13 Days

Today I had my 13th day of radiation. I will have 2 more this week to finish the treatment on the larger area and next week resume one or two more weeks targeting the tumor.
I am defiantly feeling more tired today after the radiation. Matt made dinner for all of us and Chris and I watched the movie "Moon". It was ok.

I did see my surgeon last week, he and the radiologist both said they cannot feel the tumor anymore.I do not have to see the surgeon any longer and have been cleared to resume normal activity. Now,if I just can find the energy to do so :)

I had worked my way up to 5 pills with the Tykerb, however my doctor has me back down to 4. I started having some chest pains last night so I am back to 4. This is the medication that can effect your heart like the Herceptin did in the past.If it happens again, I am to stop the medication. Otherwise I have labs and an apt. next week.

The side effects are starting to add up but overall I am doing well.Not much running and that has been disappointing.But... my awesome son ran for me... see previous post :)

Thanks all~ I am definitely starting to feel the effects of the treatments now.

Hoping the camping trip and fresh air will help with energy!

Better than defiantly feeling the effects, I guess. ;-)
