I see light up ahead

So Deb said to me, "you should write about the end of radiation." And it's funny, because I write here every day, but when it comes to my personal medical path, it takes me a little while to find the right words.

Friends want to take me out to celebrate because today is my last day of radiation. Right now all I want is a nap (o.k. cookies and a nap.)

Maybe my lack of exaltation is due to the fact that I see this as a yellow light, not a green one. Active treatment is over, now observation begins.

Don't get me wrong. I am happy, I am grateful, I have friends who would give anything to be in this place.

I love this photo from the Boston Herald.com. I'm not out of the tunnel, but I can see daylight.



  1. sorry 'bout the typos in the first version of this!

  2. Congratulations darl, and you pulled through it, with pillow cases in tact..... no really I understand the sleep thing, and your trepidation about hurry up and wait.

    You are stronger thatn you realise though. Your here, and helping hundreds of us out in cyberland. Thank you

  3. Thanks Zen for the very nice comment!
