Well that was a downer, huh?

Let's vary things up around here.

Radiation finished this week. The doctor, nurses, and techs said it went well, and I seem to have come through it relatively free. They did ask me to pay attention to how I feel and let them know if I have headaches, dizziness, or blurred vision, as that could be an indicator of some swelling in my brain.

One night a few days afterwards, I noticed my vision was doing funny things. I kept having to blink, squint, and shake my head to see things clearly. Not wanting to seem paranoid, I casually mentioned it to Adam, who wisely advised sleeping on it and re-evaluating in the morning.

Morning came and I cleaned the smudges off my glasses. No more problems.

That is so funny. Way to go wise Adam! :) But I'm also glad that nothing is wrong either.

We love your story. So glad there is no brain swelling either. Love you

I love you guys!

Dad Walton said...

Ahh, the dreaded smudge on the glasses malaise.

I feel like I live my whole life with glasses smudges! Note to self. Take a moment each morning to clean glasses. That's got to be a characteristic of clear thinking people.

What a blessing that your strong brain withstood the radiation therapy, Bonnie.

We're thinking about you and fasting for you today Bonnie. We love you!
