Three long weeks after starting radiation, Mat is finally done! He had a higher dose this time than in his previous two rounds, because there were two places to radiate instead of one, and it showed. Mat has been really tired and had to rely more on taxi service for his daily appointments than his motorcycle. The radiation has helped, though -- he's walking better and in noticeably less pain than before.
Today we're meeting with Dr. Ryan to go back to the drawing board for a new chemo regimen for all those tumors we can't radiate. It looks like there's a clinical trial that Mat may be eligible for -- hopefully we'll find out today. It's amazing that every time we think we're at the end of the list of treatments to try, Dr. Ryan always seems to have something up his sleeve.
In between radiation appointments, we've stayed busy watching Ian's baseball games. He had fun this season trying his hand at pitching, and his team won the town championship for their division. (Ian was just happy to get a really big trophy.)
