Yes!!! Proton Therapy

imageJust got a call. Proton therapy has been approved. It’s the latest and greatest radiation therapy..supposed to offer better quality of life during and after radiation. Evidently it used to be given to anyone who could benefit but recently, Medicare and insurance companies are a little more careful. Simple reason …it costs twice as much

Why I was approved I don’t know. It may have been that I’ve had radiation in an area close to where they’re targeting. It may be that I’m just a nice old lady that everyone feels sorry for. It may be that everything, yes everything, continues to go right because people pray and send good thoughts and healing energy. I don’t care why. I’m just glad they approved it. Jerry and I were considering paying for it ourselves if they said no. Look at all the money we’ll have for more fun stuff.

Proton therapy and once a week chemo being in early January.
