"Radiation is no pussycat"

What you learn is that each specialist is pushing their own bag. The oncologist is saying, radiation is no pussycat. And we reminded ourselves of that many times through the next few months, because he was absolutely right. It was not. But I decided I'd rather go through that than to look back on it and say well I could have taken the time off work and done it and I didn't. And certainly, radiation, (the process I mean), I found it just very challenging and exciting.
