Sunday Summaries #34: Second Week of Radiation and Doggie toes

I'm trying to distance myself from the news and the ugliness of what is happening everywhere, mostly because I can barely handle what is happening inside of my own house.

Sunday Summaries #33: First Week of Radiation and Fatigue

I started radiation on Tuesday. The doctor came in to warn me that with my chronic illness, the fatigue would probably set in immediately. Most people it takes about a week.

Sunday Summaries #26: Post Surgery and Recovery

It's been a long week. Sunday/Monday was all getting things ready for post-surgery. House cleaning, washing sheets, food prep, getting an emergency over-night bag together, just in case. Tuesday was the radiation seed implant. They place a radioactive marker the size of a grain of rice into the tumor, so the doctor can find it… Continue reading Sunday Summaries #26: Post Surgery and Recovery

Sunday Summaries #19: The Week Before Surgery

Yikes. My surgery is this week already??? I don't know if time dragged or flew. Two new short stories published this last week. One for kids, one not so much.
