The arrival time for my radiation appointment was 8:15...might as well get the fun over with early in the morning.  I actually didn't have any radiation today, but they confirmed my measurements to see if they had to make any adjustments.  I had to stay very still while they did this for a good 40 minutes...I'm pretty sure I almost dozed off or was in some other world because when S, the tech came back in, she startled me and I almost pooped my pants.  

When I first arrived this morning, I was greeted by S and she directed me to the dressing room where I was given my very own gown with a #32 on it.  Because of the gown's drab color and the number assigned to me, I started to feel a bit like an inmate.  Being perfectly still in an unnatural position with my arm up added to this feeling.

Why are the gowns so drab?....yuck!  A little color never hurt anyone.  Actually, I think some of the gowns are more colorful.  I'm going to have to scope out the situation tomorrow.  Too bad this is my gown for the next 35 treatments.  Do you think it would be too much to ask for a nicer one?  Maybe I can earn one for good behavior.
