So off I went today for the prelim stuff before starting the radiotherapy next week. I knew I had to have X-rays, scans, and …. one or two other things. However I did think it was a little tactless, to suggest I should use the ‘rear entrance’ !!
Just got back from the hospital, after meeting with the Radiotherapy
people. It looks like it will be the end of October/beginning of Nov.
for the treatment, which I’m not looking forward to at all, though unlikely
to have long term side effects…. but there might be some quite
unpleasant ones during the month. And it will require some more
recuperation afterwards. . . so another few months missing from
2010….. but hopefully will be a bit better by Xmas.
Have to go for several visits beforehand …. for ‘setting up’ this
involves tattooing a target on my lower regions: I asked for another
Popeye style on my arm…. but they declined. (reminded me of the
Gary Larson cartoon attached below)… you have to laugh…. there’s
no other bloody alternative.
I spent some(!) time yesterday, uploading, linking and tagging: and it certainly increased traffic to the site. However it still didn’t get anywhere near my ‘best day’ occurred when I was lying in a hospital bed and the site had as little activity (in terms of new posts etc..) as I’d had for five days….. hmm…..
