Update

Well, I have been done with radiation for 2 weeks. I went in for a skin check as scheduled and the itchiness and slight pain I have are all normal.
Last Friday, I had a major melt-down and was afraid that I had gotten mean and crabby again. Through the course of surgery and all, I have been pretty chipper, especially for me as I can be rather mean and crabby a lot. I was really enjoying the being happy.. and I was feeling real happiness again, and I haven't felt that in a looong time.
I called the Cancer Resource line and of course everybody was out until this week. But I had a talk with the person I got mean and crabby at and found an article from a breast cancer survivor that I actually read and it made me feel better. I found ( duh) that I am not alone in feeling what I am feeling and I am at a place that could be called the "new normal" for me.
I still haven't told my parents, and am really debating whether or not to tell my cousin who is coming in for the big graduation party this weekend. T tell the truth, I am afraid that she will tell her Mom( my aunt) and then my aunt will tell my Mom.
Thank you again my LJ friends for being there for me.
*hugs*

Bell Ringing ceremony




Of course I started to cry

Update and Happy Birthday to me

Well, my big birthday surprise is that I am done with radiation today. The Doctor said no "boost" so it was only 16 treatments.
When you are all done, a staff person reads you the certificate and you ring the bell on the wall. ( I have piccies on my cell phone, but the dumb thing crashed today) It is a beautiful sounding bell and I gave it a good clang and it hummed for a long time afterwards. I of course cried. And my friend who had the 7:12 time before me stayed to be part of it. She cried too. It was a very emotional thing. I have to take hormone blockers for awhile, and do follow up appointments. But I can just move on now with regular stuff.
