Treatments to begin Thursday

Kelly had her simulation appointment with radiation today. They did CTscans to pinpoint where they will radiate her brain. She also got her mask. She will wear this everytime she has a radiation treatment to hold her head in place. It also has marks on it to help them position her for radiation, which is nice since they won't have to put any marks on her skin this way.

She will begin her actual Radiation Treatments and Chemotherapy this Thursday afternoon. She also will have an appointment that morning with her oncologist and have blood drawn. This will become her weekly routine. It is reassuring that they will be monitoring her so closely. We are getting to know Orange very well.

Hi Kelly,
Just wanted to tell you I'm thinking about you and your family! I love the picture of you and Dr. Muhonen in the last post. Very cute! I know I shouldn't admit this to you, but I convinced Elise Greyson to tell me the end of the Harry Potter book. ;) She just finished it and loved it! Glad you're enjoying it too, even if the book on CD doesn't read nearly as quickly as you! I found the same thing when I listened to books on CD when I was on bed rest. Anyway, sending positive thoughts your way!!!!!
Love,
Clare Reding

Hi Kelly,
Greetings from New Jersey! Just checking in to see what's happening. I'm glad that you're savoring Harry Potter. I understand the narrator has 200 character voices. Nana and Poppie send their love too.
Love Aunt Denise

Hi Kelly,
This verse from the Bible helps me when I need to be brave and I hope that it might encourage you and your mom, too. Joshua 1:7a,c Be strong and courageous, that you may be successful whereever you go... and Philippians 1:6 For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.
Jesus loves you Kelly. He will never leave nor forsake you. I pray that He fills you and your mom with peace and His healing power. May He touch and heal you today!
Your trip to Hawaii looks fantastic. I can almost smell the flowers there!
Have a relaxing weekend,
Love,
Jenne Gaudet and Cristie :>
