I finished my 12th treatment on Friday night. I am getting closer to number 15 – which will be halfway finished – all downhill from there! My appointment was at 6:15, but I got a call in the morning saying that they are running slow – could I come at 8:00. I learned that all of the proton machines were down in the morning – causing the delay. I still went to the appointment around 6:00 – they had tried to catch up – and the two people in front of me did not show up. I ended up in the machine only about 20 minutes after the original appointment. The radiation therapy went by quickly – especially with the long version of Stairway to Heaven on the radio. I was right close to the last blasting by the time the song was over.
