Thanksgiving Update…

This morning I had my 30th and final radiation.  It has been a long tough road and I couldn’t have made it without the love and prayers from all of you.  Thank you. The good Lord held my hand  and helped me to be strong.

Now begins the healing process.  My body is still filled with radiation and will be for the next week or so.  My  neck is fried deep purple and is extremely painful.  The  whole inside of my mouth is burned including my tongue which is very painful.  It is very hard to swallow and it is like I have a very severe sore throat.  And of course I have the Bride of Frankenstein hair.

I have a follow-up next week to have my skin checked.  I have a foul smelling cream that I was given to put on my neck.  I have been reduced to drinking the Ensure type drinks.  Since I have no taste buds they all taste the same.  It is still very difficult to swallow my pills.

I am thankful to still be alive and writing this post. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving,

Love,

Beth
