Starting Radiation and Chemo

Hello Everyone,

Well I started radiation on Thursday and Chemo on Friday. I haven’t had any side effects from either really yet. I was feeling a little queasy yesterday afternoon but it was short lived. They said I would lose my hair because where they are doing the radiation. So in a week or so I’m probably going to be completely bald. I’m about there now so it won’t be a big deal.

As far as the radiation goes it last all of about 6 minutes to do. It takes longer to hook me up to the machine than it does to do the procedure. I will be doing radiation 5 days a week for two weeks for now. Here are some pretty cool pictures of me hooked up and ready to go in.

The chemo is a pill form named Temodar. It’s a 180 MG capsule. I will be on it for 14 days.

I’m not sure what they are going to want to do after the two weeks are up. The thing I do know is I’m going back to Houston in about 3 weeks to do another MRI on my noggin to check out how effective the radiation and chemo were. I think their going to choose their next course of meds then.

Well that’s about all I’ve got for now. I hope everyone has a GREAT weekend. I will post another update soon.

Thanks again to everyone who has supported Kim, Sydney and myself through this fight. Everyone has been great.

Much Thanks,
