Just FOUR more sessions of radiation. I was cruising along thinking I could beat the radiation system and escape with just burns. After five weeks, my skin broke down all at once. Nothing prepared me for what that would feel and look like (an audition for Walking Dead). The nurses at Good Sam have tried everything. The radiation techs even felt bad seeing me in that much pain. My deepest appreciation goes out to them for helping me. It’s better now, thanks to some new medical pads they got me. Everyone keeps asking what we will do to celebrate. I have no idea. I’d just really like a six pack of new skin cells.

THREE POSITIVES:

1- Got some new cancer jokes for ya:

2- Narcotics make back-to-school shopping much more tolerable. Check it out, Livvie kicked me out of her dressing room at Old Navy. One minute later, another mom got the boot. Good thing there’s a reject-mom bench at Old Navy. And, good thing Brian was driving that day. Geez, I look like a stoner.

This is shopping…on drugs.

3- It’s almost over. I think. I hope.

  1. Thinking about you, Jacki. Hang in there. It won’t be long before you feel like celebrating.

    Were you shopping ON drugs or FOR drugs?

    Jesus, sister… I’m so hoping September is better for you.

    (When I saw the top of the photo you posted, I thought for sure you were showing us your wound. Awesome!)
