Radiation Simulation

It almost sounds like some kind of video game–radiation simulation. It even rhymes. But it’s just the next step in cancer treatment for me. CAT scan, tattoos (Who’d have thought I would ever have tattoos? Of course, I can’t show them to anyone… Oh, well.), and a sample package of skin cream. It didn’t even take very long, much to my surprise.

It began with a long drive to the treatment center, during which I accidentally went through a red light, because I was preoccupied with figuring out where I had to turn into the medical complex. How embarrassing! At least no police officers were around. Can you believe someone my age has never even been pulled over? I tell you, up until now I have led a very dull life.

I’m trying to think of cancer as a new adventure. I am learning so much along the way–medical information, how different people respond to cancer emotionally, how many people care about me (a nice discovery!), and how God can sustain me through the trauma and drama. I already wrote one devotional on my cancer; I’m sure I can get at least an article or two down the line.

Actual radiation starts November 29th. I can hardly wait!???

About susanmaas

I grew up in the green state of Oregon, coming to love the birds, flowers, and other wild things of the woods. Our family homeschooled for sixteen years, spending wonderful vacations at the beach or camping in the western United States and British Columbia. For most of my adult life, I have been a part-time writer, creating personal experience stories, homeschooling articles, devotionals, Sunday school curriculum, and children's stories and books. I enjoy looking for signs of the eternal in nature and the small, everything events in our lives.
