Chemo and Radiation in Pictures

Julia has gotten sick a few times from the radiation, but when the anti-nausea medicine goes down well, she feels quite good. Good enough, in fact, that she's gone to school after radiation on Wednesday and Thursday. She's complained about feeling tired and she looks pretty worn out, but overall her spirits are still pretty high.

She had a snack of raisins after her port had been accessed for the first time on Monday.

Here Julia is pushing one of the saline flushes into her port herself.

Finn came along to the radiation treatment on Wednesday.

She's a trooper even with people pushing and pulling on her and green lasers sliding over her body.

The kids and I started watching the original Star Wars movies recently, so I've referenced it to describe the fancy contraptions that Julia gets to hang out in.
