Danni went to Radiology today for the first time at Parkview North in Ft. Wayne. The facility is brand new and the people there are very kind and helpful. She did NOT have a treatment today. They made a mask for her face and took a 3-D cat scan of her head to get images of the remaining tumors. The purpose for this was to prepare the machinery to be accurate and hold her head still when she does start her treatments next Tuesday or Wednesday.

The doctor was very knowledgeable and had great bedside manner. I feel very confident about taking Danni there. He examined her and backed her down on some of her medication; they also took blood to make sure that her medication doses were working properly.

The doctor also mentioned that not all of the tumors are made up of the aggressive type, so we took that as good news. The others are made of more moderate type. The wafers were specifically to take care of the tumor left around the surgery site but would have little effect on the other tumors that the surgeon couldn't get to. Weather permitting, tomorrow is "staples out" day. I don't thing Danni is looking too forward to this. Please pray for peace for her and that we get there in one piece on the roads if we go.
