I just started my IMRT this week and I'm still trying to grasp the thought that "I am having radiation". It's weird just to think about
it but I know it's what needs to be done and I'm doing it for me but mostly for my wife and kid's. The anxiety is totally normal and I'm sure your dad will be okay because the treatment it self is a breeze, well except for the tattoo marker - that hurt like hell. Only for a minute though. Good Luck and I'll be thinking about
you and your Dad.
