Just a brief update

 I am into my 3rd week of radiation treatment and all is going well. It gets a bit tiring driving to the hospital each day. Parking takes longer than the actual treatment.
Good news is my hair has started growing again and I have a soft fluffy covering on my scalp.
I'm wearing beanies more now as it has gotten quite chilly. So there's 3 more weeks of radiation to go and most of the hard work is done. I will still go in every 3 weeks to receive Herceptin but at least that's manageable.
On a stitching note I've been doing a bit of secret squirrel stuff and also preparing for a retreat with Helen Stubbings and Gail Pan - A Stitching Affair. Luckily it's the week after radiation finishes so I can get some girly therapy.
I'll be back later to show you what I've been making.

Glad you're doing well, Jo. I wonder how your hair is going to grow back - straight or curly, dark or blonde!
