Proton (radiation) therapy: day 23

Today was 23-of-28 days of proton therapy. I’ve been wearing no shirt whenever possible the past week because it feels better. I worked from home today for that reason.

I took a shower a half hour ago; the area along the sternum now hurts like a sonuvabitch. It hurts to put the lotion on it.

Everything stings – and it’s a hot bzzzzt sting.

I know how much worse it is today than five days ago. I can’t even imagine what next Tuesday will feel like.
