Radiation update

Madeleine’s Blog 

March 5, 2012

Madeleine had her first radiation treatment on Thursday morning, and then her second one this afternoon. She had some soreness after the first treatment, but overall seemed to be doing well. She was even able to have the swim team over to our house for an after-practice dinner and get-together!

She now has 2 radiation treatments down, and 4 to go - 2 each week (Monday afternoons and Thursday mornings). The radiation treatments themselves actually are pretty short appointments. The doctors say that the side effects tend to build up as you go...of course, we are hoping that the main effects will be on any remaining melanoma! :)

As always, thanks for your prayers.

Praying for your third treatment this morning! I am visualizing the radiation zapping any remaining melanoma cells. Zap zap! :) Be strong!
