Day 1 almost over

The first radiation treatment went by with no hitches. I did cry a little when the mask was locked into place. It is good that the mask is plastic / waterproof. The mask didn't seem as tight as yesterday on my chin. (Can't explain that) I am thankful that I brought my Aaron Shust CD to listen. It was nice having something familiar in the room. The procedure took only about 10 minutes. I kept my eyes closed the whole time. While on the table, the machine goes from the right side over to the left side. The table itself turns to the left and radiates from a different angle. Definitely pray for my optic nerve & lens. It is bright even with my eyes closed. Be sure to read the previous post - I did add more info about my optic nerve & lens.
As for nausea - NONE! PTL. I don't feel any different today. Just a little tired. It was difficult to fall asleep last night. Too much anticipation.

Thankful for no regurgitation / throwup : ) - Kate

Thank you God!! We're still praying that you won't have the nausea nor any eye problems.

I've got tears of joy and relief that the first radiation treatment is finished!

zephaniah 3:17
The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet yuou with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Rejoicing with you that this huge burden of treatment has so far been manageable. Praying that the daily radiation will come to be an ordinary thing, uneventful, not worthy of worry or anticipation (and then, of course, that it will be done forever!!!!)
