Radiation continues and only Herceptin injections

15th Treatment

I’m working my way through radiation therapy and Herceptin injections and this is my last time with double treatments. Wow, I can’t believe what a great feeling it is to know that next week I only have daily radiation. The radiation treatments are going very well. I’m using a lot of Cetaphil and Aquaphor creams throughout the course of the day to minimize skin irritation. Weekends are great as I have no radiation treatments and it gives my skin a break. Oh, I tried calendula cream but way too much lavender in it, I got an instant headache. For those of you who know me well, that's not surprising with fragrances.

I’ve hit a roadblock with the politicians both at the federal and state level, I can’t get anyone to return phone calls or emails. I’m going to start over but luckily I have a copy of the proposed resolution. Several people recommend Amy Klobuchar, so I’m going to give that a whirl this week. If anyone has ideas at the state level, I’m all ears or if you have an inside connection on chair leads.

Crazy thing that happened this week, I lost all of my eye brows. Weeks after chemotherapy ends, I’m losing my eyebrows, didn’t see that coming. I’m taking hair and nail vitamins to hopefully accelerate the growth process.

Well, the plan was to be done with Chemotherapy and Radiation by Xmas and it’s happening. I can’t wait for 2019, only have Herceptin treatments every 3 weeks. Easy peasy!!!
