12. Ah! I did that too!

I had to go for stereotactic therapy (I think it was called) and they fit a mask - warm plastic mesh that cools at it adheres (I think I asked and they said it needs to reach 140 degrees to be pliable, then obviously they cool it down a little bit before putting it on you). At then end it looks like some funky fencing mask down to the shoulders. I got to keep mine. Maybe I'll paint it for halloween.

First time through, however, sucked (I had four or five sessions). I was uncomfortable, unsure how to get comfortable, and the music they had in the background (a CD carousel that played tunes picked randomly) but unfortunately they had it on "sample" so it'd play 1 song for 5 seconds then move on to the next. It took a few minutes to figure out what was going on, but after that it was hell. I'd barely get into the cajun music then *poof* it was back into James Taylor or Garth Brooks or something.

After that, I brought my own CD.

Fortunately, the stereotactic radiation seemed to work - no moe lesious that we can detect.

Take care,

- Tab
