I am already 8 days down with Radiation and 20 to go. all is well so far with the skin and i am feeling well. being from the country has made it really hard for me as i miss my family so much. my husband came for the weekend an it was wonderful to see him. i only wish he could stay all the time. he is so busy with work. it has been very hard on him as well. i am looking forward to his next visit. the internet has been a blessing as i have be able to keep intouch with my grandies and kids as well. cheers

Hi Jodielee, It must be so hard being away from home. Plenty of people to chat to here! Sometimes I think it is harder for those who have to watch. Take care, Samex
