Radiation & Chemo Update

The doctors are very pleased and yet again impressed with how well Cody is tolerating his chemo and radiation. He may have to take the chemo pill everyday instead of 3 weeks on and 1 week off.

They have had a hard time getting the radiation where they need to so it takes them a long time to get him adjusted. Cody has to lay on the radiation table for a good hour or more. They had to redo his body mold on Friday. Before they had two separate molds they had to keep readjusting him and were having such a hard time because he is tall. They decided on Friday to redo the mold and just have one full one. Since they had to redo the mold and do another simulation it delayed his radiation. He will now have to add an extra day at the end.

Radiation is really hard on him. They have him laying on a hard table for a long time in a very uncomfortable, awkward position. He is very stiff when they are done and has a hard time moving. It is pretty painful. He has had nausea with the chemo and radiation but they have that under control with anti-nausea medication.

The manager of the hotel they have been staying in gave them free tickets to the Harlem Globetrotters for this Saturday January 29th so at least they get a break from the Hotel room and the Hospital and can go do something fun. The Manager and his family got them for doing a walk-a-thon and decided to pass them on to Cody. It's been hard. They don't have a car so they have to take a cab everywhere or walk so they haven't really been out doing much. Saturday should be fun though.

Thanks again to everyone who keeps checking in your support and love is much appreciated.
