Today I take a pill that is meant to kill any remaining cancer cells in my body. I am a bit nervous and very sad. My children need to leave the house for a few days, as I will become radioactive. This brings me to my point. How is it safe for me to ingest a pill that has enough radiation in it that others can't be near me? It seems crazy! I am optimistic that everything will go as planned and that in a week, when I have a final body scan, any existing cancer cells will be gone. So, here is to one more week of insanity.
