First radiation

Andrea had the first radiation Monday, 11/05, for about 30 minutes. She wore a special mask and plans are to have the 30 minutes sessions every day until November 28 except on Saturday and Sundays, and she gets to skip Thanksgiving Day. Then we went to the Stem Cell Transplant doctor. He needs a bone marrow biopsy which will be today, Tuesday 11/06, after the radiation treatment. He also said the plans for chemo have been changed. After radiation Friday, Andrea will receive the first dose of chemo.
Thank you for your prayers.

Hey Kathy,

I have a pretty flexible schedule this week and was wondering if you'd be up for a visit while y'all are at M. D. Anderson. Give me a call if you have some time in between appointments. 713-792-9133

Dear Andrea and family,
I am constantly thinking and praying for you all, and I am continually inspired by your faith and strength. How are the eyes doing? I hope they are well.
Just know that you are near and dear to my heart and soul, and my prayers are always with you.
Love, Carolyn
