>Kim Update

>Well, we talked to the Radiation Oncologist, and he gave us our options so far as zapping Kim’s head with radiation. I asked him what the odds were that she would develop some kind of superpower, since that is what got the Hulk going, but he didn’t think this would happen. I remain hopeful. 😉

I think we are going to do the “fractionated stereotactic radiation”. That way she doesn’t have to have the HALO screwed into her head, and it has less chance of side effects than the one day thing. Basically, she will go to the hospital once a day, M-F for five to six weeks. They will give her a very low dose of highly focused radiation (to the tumor). It is supposed to make the tumor stop growing, or even shrink (in most cases). We will probably start this sometime after next week, since that is Becky’s birthday.

In other news, Kim’s grandma’s twin sister Evelyn passed away this week. She fell down some stairs, they took her to the hospital, and the next day she passed away. I didn’t know her that well (I have only met her a few times) but I know she has a husband and daughter. Our thoughts go out to them.
