Rich’s neck graft was coming apart somewhat at the bottom. It wasn’t bleeding, but it just looked like it was separating, so we took some pictures and emailed them to the doctors in Columbus. They responded with a powerpoint presentation using one of the pictures and detailed instructions on how to pack and care for it. We were fearful that he would have to go back to Columbus, but thanks to technology, he didn’t have to do that. Yeah!

The radiation treatments are scheduled to begin the 28th and he will have them in Wooster, along with the weekly chemo. (not in Ashland as we originally thought). They are also only going to give the radiation treatments Monday through Friday and he will have the weekends off to rest up – Yeah!

Everything else is pretty much the same – still experiencing pain, but he is so strong and handling it. Keep praying for patience and healing! Thanks!!

    No one does radiation on the weekends unless it is absolutely necessary. My 35 treatments were Mon thru Fri except the one week when the department had two days off and then I went in on what should have been a day off for the department.
    Have they fitted him for a mask yet?
    I have those pills if you want them.
    Thinking of you guys and let me know if you need anything. I have tons of books about chemo and radiation that the James gave me. They are all good to read and prepare yourself for what COULD happen!

    • Yeah, it’s been a learning experience and it hasn’t even started…when they said “every day” we took them literally. LOL!
      I’ll definitely come and get the pills. He will be grateful to have them.
      The mask fitting is on the 21st and a CAT scan on the 22nd, then treatments start on the 28th.
      Thanks again for your support Nancy! You are a wonderful friend!!
