Treatment Schedule Update

We have been getting questions about when Kelly will be beginning her treatment. She had a consultation with her radiation oncologist yesterday, and Monday she has a simulation appointment with radiation. They will fit her with her mask that will hold her head in place for her radiation treatments and show her how everything will work. Then they have to work out the mapping for the machines, which will take a few days. So we are not sure exactly when the radiation treatments will actually start. Most likely it will be toward the end of next week. She will start chemotherapy at the same time, so we will are waiting to find out when that will be. As soon as we know more, we'll let everyone know. Kelly is doing amazingly well. I admire her positive spirit.

Hey Girlfriend,
Sounds like you and me will be on the same schedule with radiation. They rag-dolled me into wierd postiions to get my "area" and are in that review process before they do the sample/test/dry-run. They haven't called me back yet to do that. Maybe you will share more on what happens with you. I know already you are braver then me!!! There is no way my head could be in anything and then have me sit still!! You go girl!! You are MY hero!. Keep those spirits up ok?
Love, The Queen :)
