Day One: I'm sitting here in the Cancer Center while Aus is back for his treatment. Today (8/8) is his first day of radiation and chemo. He took his chemo meds this morning and so far so good. He will take the chemo twice a day on days of radiation (Mon-Fri) for 5 and a half weeks. I'm hoping these weeks go by fast so we can put it behind us. We are both a little anxiuos about the side effects but I really do think he is going to be just fine. His body really is stuper strong and can handle a lot (hellllllo 5 lb tumor!) so I almost bet this radiation doesn't even phase him. I do worry about how tired he will be...from the radiation but also the fact that he has such long days, waking up at 6:00am to take his meds and get here by 7:00 for treatment. He doesn't want to miss any work so they were able to schedule his treatments before work with hopes that he could get to the office by 8:00. I am praying that he handles the radiation well and is able to drive himself here on days I am working. I will come with him as much as I can but on days I work he will have to come alone. :( I wish so bad I could come with him everyday, just so he didn't have to be alone, but he reassures me he is just fine. He is much braver than I am!
