I take my place in the radiation patient room, and wait for them to call me for a little "R and R." I take my blanket with me when it's time to go.
They take me in to the vault, past the heavy door. I lay on a hard table covered with a white sheet, and they give me a cushion for under my knees and feet, and spread my blanket over me. They tuck my feet into another warm blanket and try to get me as comfortable as possible. I open my gown and they flatten Flopsy into position, taping her down, then taping me down to the table.
I pray for blue skies ahead.
