It’s been an anxious month. I finished chemo 5 weeks ago, and in the meantime, I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting to start radiation therapy. The initial plan of getting treated here in Holland was scrapped nearly 4 weeks ago already, and I’ve spent the rest of the time waiting to get an appointment at the proton center, meeting my doctor at the proton center, waiting for approval to go ahead with the treatments from health insurance, health insurance declining to cover the treatments, appealing that decision, waiting to hear back on the appeal, researching alternative courses of action to take and a way to pay for it if I was going to get denied again, realizing the premise for Breaking Bad is a lot more plausible than I first thought, turning down a job offer I really wanted because I won’t be available to start working in west Michigan for a couple months, and, finally today getting financial clearance and scheduling my CT scan at the proton center for Thursday.
After that scan and the molds that will be made to hold my body in the same position, I’ll finally start proton radiation therapy in another 1.5-2 weeks. Finally.
Let’s just get this over with already.
