Next step; Radiation

Today (Friday, but it’s after midnight, so technically, yesterday) Eric went to Credit Valley Hospital for a ‘planning’ meeting. As he’s had radiation before, we got to skip the informational video. They ran him through the machine and tattooed dots where they will target the radiation. Sounds easy enough, but it wasn’t a comfortable procedure. Eric, however, handled it as bravely as he has everything else – and next Friday, will begin a week of radiation.

Radiation targetted at the largest tumour will shrink it – and if last time is any indication, should quickly provide pain relief with minimal side effects (extreme but temporary fatigue).

Thank you all for continuing to keep Eric in your thoughts and prayers. He continues to do relatively well; maintaining his weight and appetite. Some days are better than others, but he remains in good spirits – and never ceases to amaze with his good humour, optimism, and ability to soldier on without complaint.

Thanks again for your support 🙂
