Well 4 weeks down and 3 weeks to go. On the downhill side.
I am really no worse than when I last reported. The radiation doctor said that any side effects do not get worse through radiation, which I don't understand but I suppose is good news.
But I have been knocked down with a bad cold / flu. Worst one that I have had for a few years.
My wife theorizes that the cold / flu is also a side effect (diminished immune system). I dunno, will ask the Dr. tomorrow.
My mum has been in the hospital. My mum will be flying home to our place while my brother goes to Florida to pick my dad up and drive home with him They are both 83-84. I've been concerned about her, but apparantly she is doing better. Still weak though.
