Unfortunately, I DO have to go downtown every day for radiation since the only two locations Emory offers radiation therapy are the University Campus and Crawford Long Hospital, which is actually easier to get to even though it's one exit farther away.
My incision is healing very well, and I was surprised that it never really hurt. The red dot below my incision is where a piece of suture that looks and feels like fishing line has been poking out of my leg since August 4. I wish it would dissolve! It's annoying! My friend Karen at the office calls the purple marks "my crosses to bear." Next Tuesday I go for the second part of the simulation where they'll re-mark my leg, and I think I start radiation on Wednesday.
