X marks the spot

Today was the set up meeting with the radiologist. I was given a ct scan, molded and given alignment marks. The daily radiation process will ultimately be very fast.

I have a key card to alert everyone of my arrival, so there’s no check in.

They made a mold of my back on the bed that goes into the radiation machine.
It’s made of micobeads, like a bean bag, and they sucked the air out of it with a vacuum. My arms go up over my head and hold that bar near the top of the bead.

They added marks on me to make alignment easier – on my front and both sides

The radiation room looks like this, the mold of my back is on that bed.

This is the door in and out of the radiation room. It’s 10 inches thick.

When radiation starts next week, we’ll have one dry run to get everything in perfect alignment, make any adjustments, then the following day start the treatments. They shouldn’t last more than 15 minutes.

And here’s the plan. Next week, off to the races
