Making my face mask for radiotherapy

Good evening every body!!!!

I got my face mask today for my radiotherapy. They had to make it especially for me to fit my face.

We first played a little with the material so that I could understand what they were going to do.

Then I made a mask for a grown up doll!

Then it was my turn! I got 3 tattoo’s today!!!!!!!! I never expected to get tattoo’s!!! I think it is cool, daddy doesn’t! Hahahhahahahahahahh this will be my special bed that I will lay on every time I get radiotherapy.

I almost look like an alien or something! This special mask will keep my face and head in the correct position and help me hold my head still when I receive radiotherapy. It is a little scary because I can’t move and I’m strapped down on the bed. But I stayed calm and I relaxed. I breathed in deeply and just thought of the sea like daddy and I have practiced. I thought about the things I like and just relaxed as much as possible. Radiotherapy is not for someone who is claustrophobic! That’s a big new word I learned today! You have to relax and not panic! I was proud today because we made the mask and I did very good!

Another job well done and it is behind us! Daddy took this when we got home
