It is unclear whether or not my scalp will actually end up being burned. My guess is that it will. I just have to decide between a burned head, weird waxy hair, or prematurely cutting it which would help with the burn cream, but potentially show more bald patches later. Tonight Hridayashri put it on my head which I think will mean a lot less ending up in my hair...
Got thru day five of radiation with Karunadevi, so half way there. The mask, which I will try to get somebody to take a picture of, seems to be getting tighter. When I mentioned this to the technicians, they said it's probably the dexamethasone making my face puffy.
At Rainbow Grocery there wasn't a single can of tomato soup without added sugar. It's not that I am not eating sugar. I've gotten more lax with that - it just bugs me now, unless I'm eating a piece of cake. Looking up Campbell's tomato soup I see that one can contains the same amount of sugar as a Snicker's bar.
What with my radiation and acupuncture schedule, getting out to look at places to live is challenging, though it's still on my mind. A brief sweep of Craig's list in the city reveals that one-bedrooms are around $2,500. Going to have to be further afield.
Going to So. Cal. this weekend to see my dad, my step-mom Chris, and Laura who has been staying down there.
Overall, today, felt incredibly blessed.
