I’ve been quieter than usual. I’m not sure why. Radiation is going pretty well. My skin is fairing well and I am past the half-way point. I can now see pink outlines where the radiation covers and I feel sunburned. I continue to lather on the aloe gel and lansinoh. Yes….I am using something for breastfeeding moms but it works phenomenally well. It is very greasy but I slather it all over me every couple of nights and I think it is saving my skin. It is pure lanolin. I also use vitamin E oil sometimes at night too.
There are two issues keeping me from writing. The first is fatigue. Which I assume is from radiation. So I have given in and decided sleeping during Elijah’s nap is quite alright for a few weeks here. The second reason is my eyes. I’m struggling still with dry eyes and I’m beginning to wonder if I need bifocals? Hopefully they will heal in time once my cells recover from all that chemo I had.
On another note it’s Breast Cancer awareness month and another mother’s with cancer blogger posted this web site that I thought I would share called Think Before You Pink which challenges companies to accountability for pink ribbon practices. There are a lot of pink ribbons out there so ask questions about what you’re buying and how the proceeds or products effect breast cancer.
I also spotted this web site through Ford with some really cool apparel and gifts. I thought they might make some fun Christmas gifts. It’s at www.fordcares.com
