Mom Starts Radiation

We met with the Radiologist yesterday. Mom will start radiation on Tuesday. They have her scheduled for five days a week for six weeks. Tuesday she will get her markers and have her first radiation treatment.

The radiologist office is only about five miles from her house so that will make it easy for her to drive herself for her treatments. We were told the treatment will only take approximately fifteen minutes.

Mom was just starting to feel like her old self when she came down with a cold that everyone seems to passing around. Yesterday was the first day I have seen her in three weeks because I have been sick and didn’t want to expose her to it. At least her blood count is up and she was giving some medication to help her get over it.
