The Treatment Plan
This has been an important week. Ned's treatment has started. Thursday was his first day of radiation. Here the technician is lining him up to slip him into the CT scan machine where the radiation is directed directly to the cancer.
Today he started chemo. We arrived at 8 AM and put Ned in this little room with a comfy chair, a TV and view of the tree tops around Rice University. They inserted an IV and started the drips. We received lots of information about the chemos and about controlling side effects. So far, so good. But the best part is that we are one week closer to going home.
