My second injection wasn’t a picnic, but the effects were not nearly as bad as Tuesday. I felt well enough to kibitz all the way through the nutty season-ending episode of Lost. Come on: making the whole island disappear? Too bad the Dharma Initiative wasn't dedicated to finding a cure for cancer.
I’m getting into a groove with the radiation treatments. I’ll be speaking with the radiation oncologist today after my session; “patient education” is the topic. This will be a first.
