I began my radiation treatments last Friday and had my 2nd treatment today. I was more prepared today. I took my anxiety medication about 1 hour before arriving at Highlands and I also took my IPad and Jaw Bone speaker for sound. I could not hear the music on Friday from the cell phone and they took longer on setting up all the key target areas for the radiation. I had them remove my mask several times on Friday and really struggled breathing and relaxing. Today was a much smoother day. At times it would be easy to throw in the towel and say I'm all done, but God continues to place people in my path to encourage me or for me to encourage them that this battle is not our own but it's for His glory and purpose. I have 2 radiation treatments down and 13 more to go. I did not feel good over the weekend and I struggled with nausea and ended up getting sick late last night. I am thankful that my appetite has been better today and for the grace God gave me to live another day to see my family here on this earth. I pray as I continue to walk on this journey that my eyes continue to look up and not at the raging storm around me that wants to swallow me up. May I always see Jesus' hand stretched out ready to take hold of mine and that I will give him my all and my best each day I live.
"Today is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."
