Let the Radiation Begin

I haven't posted lately...been busy,...busy researching, busy planning, busy waiting, and busy worrying. I had started this blog a few months ago as a way to be able to read my life back...to myself. I didn't get very far. Forget all the old chapters I had yet to write, now it's about the present. The present is about the Radiation Road Trip. I will be starting Proton Radiation Therapy in Boston at Mass General Hospital on June 26th for seven weeks, five days a week with the desired optimum outcome of burning "Mr Dubenschmiemer" (as my daughter Rachel has named this tumor) out of my head. Burn baby, burn! Please feel free to chant along. My plan is to try and update this blog to let everyone know how I'm doing...that's the plan. How often I'm able to write will depend on a lot of things, but I will try and stay current.

Bravery has different looks. There is the kind you read about... on the battlefield, in a crisis, public speaking...

And then there is the bravery that often goes unnoticed. A woman with a brain tumor who must get the kids to school, make them dinner, run a business and not complain that her vision is blurred or her head hurts. Everyday bravery.

Heidi, you inspire me to do better. To not bitch and moan when my pinkie hurts or I just feel like I do't wanna...

Your writing is powerful, not because of what has happened but because of who you are.
