Days 1 and 2 of Brain Cancer Radiation BATTLE!!!

"The Lord will FIGHT for you; you need only to be still." Exodus 14:14

That verse is so appropriate as I begin this next phase in my brain cancer treatment. I'm so so sooooo blessed and grateful to have my amazing husband Zev, my mum Maria and of course sweet baby Zachary by my side to keep me going each day!

I'll be honest: I feel great! Poor Zev was shaking yesterday after my first radiation treatment, but I think he settled down once he saw me smile and we went out for brunch at an all day breakfast diner. This has been like a daily date for us! Love it!! 

Being in the Word every single morning plus having a fun joke to put into our Radiation Battle Joke Book as well as a good diet and working out at the Y AND a positive attitude is the key to kicking this brain cancer's butt to the curb! Fun music (Black Eyed Peas "My Humps" was playing as the radiation techs came in at half-time to adjust me. If you have ever heard the lyrics, you can imagine my embarrassment! I didn't choose the songs: the music therapist did! Lol).

Enjoy the pics! As of today: 2 radiation sessions down; 28 to go! Let's do this!

Love FIFi :-))

Day 1: Wore green for St. Patricks Day and Zev cooked some awesome Aussie lamb for dinner!

Day 2: A beautiful picture with my baby Z man and the international symbol of hope for cancer: daffodils!
Date day at the radiation clinic!
Thank you all for your prayers. Really means a lot :-))

Fiona, I miss you and am praying for you all. I'm up with Shiloh (she has a nasty cold) and thought about you. Since I'm not on FB anymore, checked in to see here how you're doing. <3 -Ime
