5 day boost

Today marked 5 days of treatment left and what the oncologists call 'the boost'. They are no longer treating the whole breast, but focusing on the incision site. The treatment is shorter, but more intense. And I'm having a lot of pain and discomfort, so I guess it's working!
As prep for the boost, the doc drew all over my breast with blue magic marker. It's rubbing off on my clothes and skin, so I look faintly blue on my whole right side. So pretty! And that's on top of the alligator skin. I can't wait to be done. I can't wait to wash off all of the marker.

Just think, this time next week, you'll be popping the cork on a bottle of champagne and celebrating being DONE! Woot.

I read somewhere recently that Aquaphor lotion (found at any drugstore) might help with your alligator skin. And Mederma will help with scarring afterward.
