Tomorrow the CyberKnife surgery finally starts!
It seems as though it has taken a long time to get to this point. It was like April 17 when the nurse first call to tell me that there was "a spot" on my 3-month x-ray.
Recently there have been a few people who seem surprised to see me, and they exclaim, "You're back already! How did it go?" And I have to explain that I haven't left yet, that nothing has happened yet. All we have been doing so far is having tests and collecting more information.
On Memorial Day, I saw a snapping turtle in our big flower bed and we took pictures of him sitting there, blinking at us and not doing much. Eventually Mr Turtle started walking toward the little pond next to the house, and my Dad got a fantastic shot of him striding through the grass, moving surprisingly fast.
I hope that this is a metaphor for my cancer treatment. It has been pretty slow so far, but we're about to get moving and accomplish a lot. And perhaps there will be some sushi along the way. Turtles eat sushi, right? Not bugs?
