The mask loos very odd
It lools rather odd, but is basically there to hold my head still during the
treatment. I have to just switch off and let them do what they want to do.
The three appoitnents I had today were to ensure that the mask was the
correct size, and also to mark where they are going to apply the
Radiotherapy beams, so now it has lots of crosses and measurments on it. The
doodles obviously mean something to someone..
I also mad an appoitment at the wig room for next Wednesday too.
I have been told I may end up going bald, I may only go bald on select
patches. So having a wig will give me the option of having a full head of
hair if I want to go out. - will be odd for me to wear a wig without the
whole getup of miss whiplash on as well.
I was also contacted today by someone on facebook who has a family member
who has just been told they have to go for tests for somethin gin their
head, like I did at the start of September.
This is a hard thing to discuss for anyone, and having been there and been
told the worst news I do feel for them, the waiting is awful.
The only advice I could give them was to be POSITIVE, there is noting else
you can do. Being positiveis to me is the most important thing I can do, and
those around me can do. If im positive in my mind, then im hoping that my
body will follow suit.
We found a poster in a shop and it sums up exactly how I feel
It's a comedy slogan, but it actually touched me and is basically how I
feel. Team Steve is standing up ready to fight this thing.
Anyway, today has been a good day and tomorrow is going to be better.
Anyone that wants to drop me a line please do so, all I can offer is a
positive comment and any adice that I have picked up along the way.
