Sonny, even though its been 10 years, I still remember the horror of the mask I had to wear 35 times in my previous neck/throat RT. I think I hated that part as much as what it was doing to me. When I was through ,they asked me if I wanted to keep it. You should have seen the look I gave them. I feel for your Lynn in that, and I need to correct you, properly she would be the Pilsbury Dough Girl, not Boy, lol. My very best to her, glad she only has 6 more to go. And more importantly, hope it works.
David in also a very cold, damp, SC. Chance of snow mixed with rain tommorow here, then down to upper 20s.
