Seizures & Radiation don't mix

Coffee of the Day - Vanilla Nut

I'm taking a week off from radiation because my seizures have come back full throttle. they reared their lovely head the end of last week and haven't let up, I'm sad to say. I made the decision yesterday to take this entire week off from my radiation treatments in hopes of getting the seizures under control. We know that the 2 are related, so hopefully a week of rest will help all around. I have 3rd and 4th degree burns from my treatments, so that is certainly triggering all of the fun goings ons.... It hurts to have clothes touching the areas where I am burned, so I'm wearing tank tops in our 30* temps. whine whine whine whine whine!
there is never a dull moment in our house, that is for certain! ;)

I'm behind on emails and blog comments, I know. I owe so many thank you's I have lost count. I do need to get out blog candy packages, but haven't received any addresses yet, at least that I have tracked down, so please send those when you can if you were a winner.

know that all of you are in my thoughts, even if I don't get in touch.

in honor of 'Grimm'!

on the upside, I'm almost caught up on last season's 'Grimm' and 'Fringe'! wooo hooooo! on to 'Glee' when these are done..... love ya!

Oh Jenn,
I am so sorry you have having seizures again and hope that taking a break from the Radiation will help! I also hope it will give your body some time to heal from the burns too!!

This is all SO UNFAIR and it's heartbreaking to know you have to deal with all this. You are such a good and kind person and it's just is NOT right!! I'll never understand why such awful stuff, happens to so many great people!! I am so sorry !!

Hugs and love,

Jennifer, here's wishing you a better week ahead--less pain from your burns and no more seizures!!!! You are certainly getting "the treatment", aren't you?
Enjoy your shows--I am sure they help take your mind off your body for a bit! Sending you lots of love & hugs, Penny

Hello my beautiful friend...hope this finds those nasty seizures subsiding & the burns easing a little! You are always in my thoughts even if I haven't been around much lately (bad Renee!!) I have told so many people of this amazing woman I have met in "blogland" & the terrible fight she is going through. Some of them think I am crazy when I start to cry telling them about someone I have never met...but most of them get it! You are in my heart & thoughts Jen!
Luv ya!

I hope that the seizures have stopped and that taking the break from radiation has given your body a chance to recover a bit. You are most definitely not whining. What you are going through is so terribly hard.

Thinking of you and sending the best wishes ever.
