The radiation team came by and we decided that Mom can have all of her radiation at the MD Anderson location in The Woodlands. Mom will be fitted for a mask but luckily it has a whole bunch of holes in it so she should not be claustrophobic. She will have 10 sessions of radiation that will last about 10 to 15 minutes each. There should be minimal side effects and it should basically kill the myeloma cells in her skull. Dr. Dabaja was in charge of Mom's case and remembered Mom from her radiation ordeal in January 2008. She convened nice message via her assistance and we were able to pass along our appreciation to Dr. Dabaja. Her quick action was one of the reasons that Mom has been able to walk for the last year ... not that well, but she was not paralyzed. So they will work on the transfer to The Woodlands location and Mom will most likely have an appointment later on this week with radiation starting next Monday.
