Day One - Tomorrow
Dad starts radiation tomorrow. He'll do it Thursday and Friday, come home for the weekend, and then go back for 5 weeks of it. He's feeling a little nervous about it, but he'll be glad to have that first "zap", as he puts it, behind him. It's time to start! It's been almost 4 weeks since he found out something was wrong, and it's been a long wait to actually start fighting this thing. The growth has actually grown bigger in the last week. It's to the point now that he can't wear his jeans. So he taught school for the past couple of days in his pajamas. So it's time to start shrinking this thing! Thank you for all of your prayers and well wishes. You have no idea how it lifts my father's spirits.
