But let's begin at the beginning. Here is the cat scan machine where the simulation took place.
These lines will help them aim the radiation beam precisely at the tumor each time.
In the meantime I'm not allowed to swim (!!!!) or bathe in a tub. Only quick showers. For 2 months. So that sucks.
The girls are starting to ask questions about why I'm not swimming with them and Daddy and where I'm going. I've shown them my purple drawings from the doctor and told them the doctor is going to use those marks to give me vitamins every day so that my tummy will feel better. Since none of the marks are on my tummy this makes for even more questions from Kate who is smarter than she should be frankly. Lucy talks about going home every day so we're teaching her that home is where your family is and that our family is here in Houston for a while. Since this kind of talk from Lucy did not happen in July while we were in FL for two weeks I'm wondering if she is just more attached or if she senses that this isn't really vacation.
Tomorrow we're going to explore the park and figure out how far things like the zoo and the museums are from our place. Houston is not a walkable city at all and there is a large golf course between us and the playgrounds, zoo, etc. Hopefully we can find some trails that will take us on a nice walk so we don't have to drive and park. The good thing is that we always have the pool to fall back on for entertainment and to tire the girls out.
