Thanks to the guys at UFPTI we will be back on track to finish next Thursday (as originally planned) after tomorrows treatment, they have put on extra days today and tomorrow to catch up from the Cyclotron failure earlier this week.
So looking forward to getting home now! 1 week to go 🙂
An extra treatment day was put on yesterday (Sunday 23rd November) to keep up with treatments over the ‘Thanksgiving Holidays’ unfortunately we were called and advised the cyclotron had broken down and was being repaired so no treatments would happen that day 😦
Forward to today (Monday 24th November) and we got a phone call at 08:30am to let us know the machine is still down and they would call us later in the day to advise of timings etc. We received a call from them later in the morning bringing my Doctors appointment forward to today at 13:30 (from Wednesday) during the visit I caught up with a radiologist who explained a leak had been detected and repairs were underway with hopes to re-start appointments later this evening (treating through the night)
Well it’s 21:35 now and we have just heard from them to state no treatments again today 😦
Let’s hope they get back on track tomorrow as today was my only contingency day, 8 more treatments to go with only 7 treatment days before we fly back!
Today I was moved into the final phase of my treatment plan (treating the pre-op tumour area) this was treatment number 29 with 10 to go! can’t wait now!
As you can see from the picture below this has zoomed into the main area of surgery, nice picture of a flower too! 🙂
Not many updates recently as mostly the same thing everyday, I am now 23 treatments in with 16 to go!
Slightly more pain in the surgery area so Tramadol are helping with that and redness in the area where treatment is happening (like sunburn, see photo below)
We have been in Florida 7 weeks today, 4 weeks to go until we will be home (can’t wait now!)
