I had another bad doctors appt last Friday with the radiation oncologist. He feels that I need to have craniospinal radiation, which is radiation to both the brain and spinal cord. Since I've already had radiation to these areas, the side effects could be worse during treatment. But the choice is to either do the treatment with the possible side effects or wait until the disease starts causing these same side effects.
It's a really hard decision to make, but I feel like I need to do something to fight back. So I'll be starting the radiation on Thursday. I would appreciate prayers for a complete healing, but I also put together a little drawing with all the nasty side effects the doctor said could happen. If you feel like it, please pick one area and pray that area stays healthy and be protected from the radiation. Thank you!
