what you should know


i lost my purple glasses.
i just jumped in with both feet for the long haul of radiation therapy here in Seattle, by having 4 right teeth extracted in preparation.
in twoish weeks, after all these preps, i'll start 5 days a week for 5-6 weeks, with 10-15 minute radiation exposure treatments (is my present understanding), with 3 weeks after that of feeling bad still before it all heals up fine and dandy.
i'm not doing chemotherapy.
my right shoulder is lower than my left shoulder anymore from surgery.
more anon. love. marty
