First RadTher Finished

My youngest brother says they call Radiation therapy RadTher in the Czech Republic, where he lives. Anyway....

about one hour doing the procedure in the LasVegas office was MUCH more interesting than uncomfortable. The office people, Dr. Treadwell, nurse Nicole, nurse Karen, and two others were gentle, kind, and so very important ---seem very competent. The only side effect was tiredness (slept about 12 hours the first night), but only 8 last night. So I'm happy.

Radiation didn't affect my appetite at all (kinda darn). John and I went to a new (for us) Mexican restaurant at the Eldorado in Henderson right afterwards. I asked for a "doggy" bag right at the beginning of the meal, and thereby didn't pack it all in my stomach. A good portion became lunch the next day before I went to 2nd Pfaff embroidery 4 hour class. Being a "member of the clean plate club" for more than a half century, this new (for me) tactic of FIRST getting the "to go container"has helped some. Getting myself to ask, and tactfully getting the servers to bring it right away has been the greater challenge.

Next Friday, here in Las Vegas, more radiation.
