Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Linda's port was removed last Friday. Woohoo! In the cancer community, this is a graduation of sorts and quite an achievement. It's nice not to have that reminder there.
To celebrate 'Breast Cancer Awareness Month', Linda starts radiation therapy today. She was tattooed on Monday with permanent marker. She also took her first low-dose of Xeloda this morning. This will continue for the next 6 1/2 weeks. Let's hope she tolerates it well. She's been itching to get back to running but unfortunately, in order to keep the radiation alignment in check, she can't lose any weight for the next month and a half. I have no doubt she'll be running the San Antonio Rock n Roll marathon next year!
