DON'T LOOK IF YOU'RE SQUEAMISH...CANCER SUCKS! PART 2
My Dad is done with the radiation treatments and now his skin has to repair itself. He's been having a hard time sleeping, since he normally likes to lay on his back, but last night he said he actually slept well. It's best if he doesn't move around much either so he's finally allowing us to help him by running errands and such. My sister, Genie, goes over in the evenings to apply compresses and I take the morning shifts. He has to put an astringent on the area for 15 minutes, cover the red areas with non-sticky pads and then he wears a mesh body stocking to hold them in place. It's really quite the fashion statement. Believe it or not, this is looking better every day! The doctor is happy with his progress! LET THIS BE A WARNING TO EVERYONE TO WEAR SUN BLOCK!!!!
