This morning, I had a last-minute visit with the doctors as the Bodine Center For Radiation Therapy. Radiation treatment for my Grave's Eye Disease burned my skin at the edges of my eyes. It feels like a slightly painful sunburn. The doctors wanted to examine me to ensure it wasn't serious. I'll use aloe to help my facial skin recover.
My hair is also falling out; another side effect of radiation treatment. I have patches in my hairline.
I had my last treatment today and rang the bell. It's bell for patients with who have completed their radiation treatment regimen to declare a victory loudly. I have been documenting my progression with the treatment by taking a daily photo of the street scenes on 11 Street between Walnut, Samson and Chestnut Streets outside of the Bodine Center For Radiation Therapy. These photographs are the last set of pictures from that experience.
I observed to Bhavna that Philadelphia seems to have more old charm than New York City. The new is being built with the bones of the old. What will become of this building on the corner of Samson and 11th Street?
