10 radiation treatments done in a couple of weeks.  Lots of back and forth to the city, some side effects- a little nausea, a little fatigue and a general lack of interest in food.  Now a week has gone by and these are starting to let up.  And I get another "vacation."  3 more weeks until the next oncologist appointment.  Up next?  Probably another scan, ca125 and possibly more chemotherapy.

Oh, and hey!  I forgot to mention...  2 weeks ago my ca125 was
