Here are the photos from yesterday's climb up the five flights of stairs. As I was doing the stairs bit by bit (this was the first 11 stairs, after that I went up with shorter intervals : about 5-7 stairs at a time as my head was really spinning on this first effort).
This is what the flight of stairs looked like from the eleventh step.
resting... waiting to gather the energy for the next exertion.
1 and a half flights to go ... almost there... the hardest part.
and this is what it looks like from the top...Feeling much better today. But it is odd as I had no expectations of what life was going to be like "after radiation" as I was so focused like the warrior going to battle, that I could only focus on the treatment... And I never ever anticipated, that, after the treatment, there is still soooo much work to do, so much to recover from, to heal from, so much emotion to go through...
Since coming home yesterday, my drawings have all been about one theme: it feels like I have come out of a huge car crash. Every tissue in my body feels the trauma.
Ione + Ben came over for a very early dinner which was lovely.
Please keep sending the moon beams my way, to help me heal inside.
