Aspiring to Hulk-ness

Radiation started today, and will be every week day until mid-December.  Not enough rads to make me into a super-soldier-monster, though.  It is less fuss than chemo, and whatever side effects there are won't kick in immediately, apparently.

It did involve my boobs getting drawn on with crayola markers and then photographed, but in a much less entertaining way that you'd think without the medical context.

Dan is currently suffering through finals, which means in the middle of all our current world stress and sick parent stress, he's having to make project about Leukemia (biology) and WW2 with an emphasis on Germnay and the Holocaust (history).  I wish I could hug his brain.
