Day 5 set up

The new set up is actually quite neat.

They took a 3 dimensional image of my body and outlined my scar on the right side.

They created a template from the outline, my scar is represented in blue. The goal is to hit 2 centimeters around the scar. This is the area most likely to have recurrence.

They cut the outline out of a metal that is .5″ thick and really heavy. Earnst told me what it was, but I can’t remember. Something sparkly, but toxic. I had to wash my hands right away afterwards.

They fit the metal template into the big machine.

Then they add this extension thing to the machine so it gets really close to me, only a few centimeters from my skin. You can see the angle of the machine mimicks the angle of the original 3d drawing they proposed.

It’s only one shot, takes 30 seconds, and I have a .5 inch bolus on me, of cool wet towels. I’m getting hit with electrons now. Previous 28 days were photons. I didn’t ask what the difference was. That’ll give us something to talk about tomorrow.

We ditched the X mark the spot stickers today, got a few new ones, and tomorrow will only take a few minutes to go from beginning to end. It was really claustrophobic in there today. I came home sobbing. I’m really sick of all of it.
