Gearing up for radiation

Monday, September 19, 2016

Drew has fully recovered from transplant. All of his counts are up and not being checked anymore.He is off all anti-nausea and pain medications. All of his fingernails have fallen off, ( a side effect from the chemo) Thursday he had his central line put back in, and also had a MRI, both of which went well. Today they took him for the simulation/mapping day for radiation. Another MRI, and a CT scan were done, as well as molds and even about 6 freckle-sized tattoos to guide the treatments.His first treatment, is Monday, October 3rd.Here are a couple of pictures from today, one of him before they put him to sleep to do all these things on him and one of his tattoos for radiation.
