    Radiation (External radiation ): October 3rd everything caught up with me! This was my first day of radiation and I was vomiting within 2 hours of treatment. Second day of radiation I was vomiting within 1 hour of treatment. This isn't going well! By day 18 I had to be hospitalized for 4 nights. They sent me home on Monday, only to call me Tuesday to return to the hospital for 65 hours of IV antibiotics due to a blood infection. I still needed to complete 7 days of radiation plus the "boost" at the end. I tried everything to get out of it (even crying) but it didn't work. I have completed the last 7 and the boost and am waiting for a phone call about starting the internal. I am not looking forward to it! I am exhausted~

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Chemo went pretty well. I was only sick for a couple days afterwards. Still can pretend I don't have cancer.

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): Surgery went well. Missed only a few weeks of work. This isn't so bad.
