Past the halfway mark!

 Yesterday David had had ˜51% of his radiation sessions - 17 out of 33, and today he was up to 54%. He now feels like he is just coming around the last bend on the track heading for the home straight!


I drove him in today as it was the day for seeing the radiation oncologist - a good report and nothing of note really for David to ask about. He did ask about the possibility of skipping the session next Thursday as we have our first COVID-19 vaccination shots on Wed 4th - he was worried about not being in good shape for travelling in the following day. However the oncologist was not keen on his missing a session (even if it gets tacked on the end) so I suggested we come in to stay in the motel across the road on the Wednesday night after our jabs, have an early appointment the following day so we can then go home and blob for the rest of the day. Suggestion accepted, motel unit booked, all good!

Half way done, great news! Is David starting to feel fatigued yet? The radiation and travel every day really takes it out of you, as I well know.

Hi Jenny,
No real fatigue yet, as far as I can see, but we are expecting it to hit soon.
I think the train travel is good - especially as we are at the end of the line, so even if he falls asleep, he'll be noticed before the train starts heading back to Wellington with him still on it and snoozing ...
How are you doing now?
