When I left this morning for radiation, I left with a great big smile on my face. Not because I was happy to be going to radiation, but because I believe having a smile on your face helps.
Radiation itself was no fun, however, afterwards they sent me to see a nurse to help with my burns. This nurse Jan was an absolute angel. She was kind and gentle with me. She could see I was in pain and upset, and she listened to me. She got me everything I asked for and she even took the time to treat me there with a saline solution that would reduce the burning pain.
I was so happy to be looked after by her, she made my day, and then my day got better. I called Dr. Mc to cancel my consultation for the DIEP flap, as I figured since the wait list was so long, I would not be able to choose the procedure, so why waste her and my time.
But wait! My day got better. I just finished writing a huge portion of my book which has been a heavy load on my mind these past few weeks, so I am pumped!!!
Hence me running around singing "sometimes I feel like a nut, sometimes I don't".
Girl! Don't get me started on what a good mood I'm in right now :-) Amazing how little things like, being cared for, getting good news and finishing a task can really boost ones mood and outlook on life.
"I think I'm a gonna get me a col pop"................M.E. you might be the only one to get that joke. LOL!
That's it for me today folks....my happy boots and I are signing off.
