Quick Update

So I just finished my fourth dose of chemo.  One more to go tomorrow.  Feel fine.  I had my second does of brain radiation today.  It only lasts about 5 minutes.  It takes about 20 minutes to get all setup though.  They do not want my head to move, so the first time I had treatment, they made a mask that goes over my face and bolts to the table.  I asked the technicians if they would take a pic.  They think I am a little weird in here. 

Even after only 2 doses of radiation, I am seeing an improvement in my double vision.  This is a good thing! 

Crystal brought the kids in for dinner last night.  It was great to see them.  Been over a week. 

Thank you for the care packages and cookies brought in this week.  Last time I lost 10lbs being in here, this time I am approaching gaining 10 lbs!

That mask looking thing is kinda scary looking. Glad the kids could make it in to see you. Family is always a good thing.

Weird is good:) The picture looks a bit claustrophobic! Guess that's my fear over needles anyday:) It's neat that you asked for a picture.
So glad things are improving and that you got a much needed family visit. Thinking of you always!
