I just got back from the very last radiotherapy session, the end of ‘active’ treatment. I was serenaded by Sade for this final round, the first time I’ve been disappointed by her. I was hoping to bring things full circle with Tracy Chapman or Phil Collins. Well ok, I could have done without Easy Lover.
They gave me this gel cream just in case my skin breaks over the next week or so while the rads keep on burning my skin. Apparently, as I’ve been told several times, they were surprised I didn’t have more blistering as I’m a ‘larger lady’ and the boob mould means the rays penetrate closer to the skin surface.
As a thank you I made some cupcakes for the staff. I made them yesterday alongside an experimental raw chocolate tart. It was a interesting mix of old next to new. As I’ve decided to change my diet to cut out sugar and eat more fruit and veg, the cupcake me is fading. Raw chocolate tart me is emerging. It’s a bit gritty and needs more work but it’s definitely where the future’s at. So here comes life, post-treatment. A work in progress but healthier, happier and tasting delicious.
