"Brisk"

Good day/Bad day?: eh

That's the word they use to describe my skin reaction. I had another radiation onc MD today (my usual MD's at a conference), and he had an interesting way of putting things. He said they're happy to see the brisk skin reaction--if my body is susceptible to the radiation and reacting like this, they hope that any remaining cancer cells are just as reactive.

Okay during the day, but after radiation I'm spent most days now. It's fairly quick when it comes on (during dinner tonight), and it's upsetting. I don't like having to check out like that. Get used to it, Jenny. A couple more weeks of treatments, and then we'll see how long it takes to recover.

Brisk, eh? What an interesting way to describe painful skin. But I like that there's a positive side to it...fry the ugly cancer cells!

Why can't Mr. Obama send those pesky Navy Seals after your cancer cells? After all, they are using you as a human shield..!! Wait......, I think I hear helicopters.......!
