    The journey that began January 2nd, 2014 is almost at an end. This Wednesday shall be my final radiation treatment.

    Truth be told, radiation is kicking my behind! I'm the first patient she's ever seen who had side effects on the first day. Right now, I'm in considerable pain. Chemo made me feel awful and tired, but it never whupped me like radiation is.

    I hope that this first run-in with Hodgkin's lymphoma is also my LAST one. Thanks for all the prayers. Time for me to use this to share Christ with others.

    Today I feel awful. My throat is so swollen, I cannot eat. I can barely drink. Tomorrow is the last one. I know that tomorrow's pain will be the apex and I gotta be ready for it. I'm looking forward to being on the other side of this thing, that's for sure.

    Update: I feel better, but throat still burned.

    Oncologist told me Monday that the chances of Hodgkin's coming back is less than 30%. It doesn't get any better than that. She says that my prognosis is "EXCELLENT".
