My turn..

Today was my first time to take Dad for his radiation treatment. My brother took him all last week. It only took 10 minutes, but we have to see the doctor on Mondays. The doc said it was too soon to tell if radiation was helping, but by the end of this week we should be able to tell a difference in his speech...assuming the radiation is shrinking the tumor. I did ask the doc if he found any other activity in his brain and he said he did not. He originally told us that there is usually more than the one tumor which showed up on the CT scan. Brother is taking him tomorrow.

I'm having yet another day of not being able to keep anything down that I eat. This is happening very frequently. I never feel bad, but there is a tightness in my throat that refuses to let any food stay down. It's my own little mystery!
