Today starts a busy two weeks for me. It started earlier today with a radiation planning session. By the end of next week I'll have had seven appointments ranging from radiation to a CT to bloodwork. My mind is already racing.
In my case, the radiation planning session is basically getting the best picture of the area where the cancer is causing pain/damage. With a few marks and more detailed picture, they can focus the zap of radiation in the right place. I had Xhevat mark a couple spots on my back that were more painful and then at today's appointment I got a few more marks. Fortunately, these marks were only made by markers and not tattoos. The clear, circular stickers are there to ensure the marks won't fade when I shower. I was told that I can't lose the center mark of the cross... how true, how true.
This is going to be a marathon of appointments for me and I'm starting it off with a sore throat & runny nose. Can you pray specifically for energy, endurance and an immune system to fight my cold and still get chemo next week? And that I'll never lose the mark of the cross.
