Starting Radiation TODAY
The beginnings of a long day... today Davis gets his nasty cocktail of chemo at Phx Children’s then they will head to Mayo to start his radiation protocol that will go for the next 5 1/2 weeks.
While chemotherapy works to kill the cancer cells from the inside, radiation works to kill cancer cells from the outside. He will be put under anesthesia and the radiation will target the areas in his abdomen affected by this cancer like a super strong X-ray.
They will go for radiation every week day on top of necessary chemo appointments and other appointments heading their way. There will be new side effects to manage, hydration to stay up on, and added medications and supplements to keep track of. Needless to say, it is going to be a long and grueling couple of months (as if this whole thing wasn’t already) so we have added some opportunities to help with meals.
Please keep praying! We are so deeply grateful for the smile you see but we also know that a battle is still waging inside of his body. We praise God for the glimpses of light through this darkness and still bring Him our pleas for complete healing.
