8/9/10 - And so, Radiation Begins

Monday 8-9-10; Ed had his first round of radiation along with chemo on Monday... I can already tell that this is going to take a toll.

Tuesday 8-10-10; Not a very good evening after chemo; Poor Ed didn't sleep well at all. His stomach is upset and he is very tired today. I'm sad. He will be receiving chemo on Monday's for the next 5 weeks along with daily radiation. We have been told that in about the 3rd week of radiation he should start feeling the effects pretty harshly.

He has put on some much needed weight and has his buda belly back; unfortunately, this will be needed weight if he cannot eat in the coming weeks. My prayer is that his appetite will hang in there so we can keep that much needed weight on him.

His mother is currently in hospice with terminal cancer; one visit was more than I could handle, to say the least. I feel horrible that I am unable to visit her again, unfortunately, I am not strong enough to walk away and stay positive. This, too, breaks my heart. Please people, if you have any, and I mean any, strange lumps or pain - do not ignore it. Push your physician to investigate if you must... If you do not take matters into your own hands, no one will.

Please continue with your prayers, I believe they help and we appreciate it dearly.

Love to all - MK & Ed
