Ring that bell!

Hi Lolly friends!

This past Thursday I completed my proton radiation treatments. Yay! So you know what that means... i got to finally ring the crap out of that ship bell :o) And it was AMAZING :o).
Ringing the bell

Wearing the bell

Glad it's over, but I'll miss the team of people who took great care of me during my proton radiation. xoxo                                              

As for me... well lately I've had more nausea/vomiting and fatigue. And now that the cumulative dose of radiation is "inside my belly," it may get worse before it gets better. With having side effects though, at least I know that the radiation is working.

At night we celebrated at the Mann Music Center and saw Pixar in the Park. It was great, but the fireworks go cancelled because of the rain :o(.

Next step is repeat scans on August 6th... we need to wait for all the swelling from the radiation to
resolve beforehand. And then... we'll go from there. So please keep the prayers coming. In the meantime... let's hope the bell steers me in the right direction. Fingers crossed.

lots of love...
