And, He's Done!

Tomorrow is Justin's last radiation treatment. Yay! As far as side effects go, he did pretty well. He did mention a sore throat and heart-burn like symptoms this week. Once he had some sorbet it seemed to help. So overall, uneventful.

Dr. Ezz told Justin that his next scans will be three months from his last radiation treatment. We thought it was three months out from chemotherapy and were mentally preparing for a CT/PET scan beginning next week. There is, once again, a chance that the radiation will light up, leading us down that road of "false" positive. Let me just say more uncertainties! We are going to double check with Dr. Fata and see when he recommends his scans being done. If he agrees with Dr. Ezz, Justin won't have CT/PET scans until late January.

There are check-ups in between, a port to be flushed, and our favorite doctor to visit at U of M [Dr. Junck].

Justin, Jackson and I are going to celebrate at The Whistle Stop! I will use any excuse to go there for breakfast!!!
