Hit mile marker 30 today. Only 3 more rad days to go. And then, from what I understand, it’s wait it out in hell for a week or two, and then,…it slowly gets better. The mucus/phlegm factor has come on strong and in a hurry. Don’t know how the body can manufacturer so much of it, but when it does it sure can. I’ve got to pity GV for having to put up with my continuous gagging sounds all day.
I made the mistake today of using magic mouthwash, which (somewhat) numbed my mouth, so I called a client. He wasn’t there so had to leave a vm. Forgetting that I had not talked all day, I could barely eke out my name. Embarrassing. I should remember that Fridays are never good days to call clients anyhow.
Last night wasn’t such a good sleeping night. I woke up every hour, almost on the hour and each time tried to gargle out the phlegm before it drowned me. I heard from a doctor today the reason for the phlegm is that radiation kills the glands that keep phlegm at bay. Lovely. And, I heard from another doctor today, that there is medication given to prevent this which evidently I wasn’t given. Sure would like to know why.
Right now I can barely keep my eyes open while seeing visions of dreams. I’m calling it a day.
