Although I am sitting here in great pain due to what is most likely a pinched sciatic nerve, I wanted to post a brief update. It is most difficult to move at all… getting up and down or in and out of the car is indeed excruciating. Standing straight up is actually the least painful way for me to be, but one old tired radiated man can only stand for so long. I’m never pain free or even close to being pain free.
Yesterday I wandered (very slowly) to the fourth radiation treatment. They have gone well… I suppose… although it has increased my cough and the esophagus has started its rebellion by placing a large lump in my throat near the larynx and causing me to choke on nothing… especially when I happen to doze off… then I am rudely awakened by choking. The skin has not started to indicate the burn as yet, but I have the aloe vera gel ready for when it does. Today’s session was a bit weird. The zapper seemed to malfunction on the first shot from straight behind my back through to the chest. It zapped for the normal period of time… stopped… then started zapping again for a short period of time. Then… on the final angle to be radiated… from the left back, diagonal into the chest… it zapped… stopped… then zapped again. This is not the normal way it usually works. When the tech came in after completion of the session, I asked… “Was the instrument a bit off today or was it just experiencing a Monday?” Her response was quite unusual. She replied… “Well… It was acting a bit strange… I thought I saw a ghost in here a little earlier.”
Wait…….. What…….? A ghost in the treatment room? I asked if it was here before or after I arrived and she became a bit vague… left it at “a little earlier”… and changed the subject. So… okay… sure… I believe in ghosts… It doesn’t even bother me that they might have been in the room where I was being treated… but it was certainly odd that the tech was willing to admit that she thought she saw one in that room.
Odd… Just odd… and are those ghosts really messing around with the equipment? Wow… I hope they are making the ‘proper adjustments’ to the zapper.
I know that you will be quite surprised that I have kept this update short, but it takes me a great deal more time to do what needs to be done these days. Thank you for all your well wishes, prayers, and healing…
I’ll be wishing all of you a most beautiful new year… a wonderful, happy and healthy year ahead.
Don’t forget to stop and smell the roses… even if it’s raining!
