Setup Complete

I am home from my setup appointment. The whole thing took a bit over an hour, in part because they had to scan me twice. The first scan didn't go low enough to be complete, so they reset and started over. The CT table was rock hard, and by about 10 minutes in my limbs were all going numb or were numb, as I was not supposed to move at all. It is hard to relax into nerve pain, but it's all over now and the actual treatments will be much shorter and later in the day. At the end of the scan, I was marked up with magic marker in three spots around my midsection, then injected just beneath the skin in each spot with a little bit of dye.

I go in for radiation treatment #1 on Tuesday, March 28th at 2:45. From that point on I guess I will be there every day for a month and a week.

Hey, it's all going to work out.
Coincidentally, did you charge them space rights for drawing on you? I hear that there is good money to be made in making yourself a walking billboard, and by letting them draw on you for free, that sets a bad precedent.

Oh, I'm on that like stink on a monkey! What's a fair price in the current flesh-space market?
