Two more radiation treatments under our belt

Yesterday's treatment went well, but Marshall was extremely exhausted. He slept most of the day.

This morning he woke up in extreme pain and took two morphine pills. As the day progressed, he took an Aleve to help with the pain. He is trying very very hard to not take the morphine because of all the issues it brings with it (like constipation). Today's radiation treatment went well but he got light-headed when he got off the table so they brought him back to me in a wheelchair. Tomorrow will be the last treatment.

We got back to the hotel and he says he has pain but at this point it is manageable pain. We are hoping that the next week or two will bring steady relief of the bone pain.

When we came up here last week the weather was very mild so we packed accordingly. Well, as you've probably seen on the news, it is snowing like crazy and some of the lowest temperatures ever experienced at this time of year in Denver. We didn't even have a snow scraper in the car so the hotel let me use a broom to clear off the several inches of snow on the car. I wore one of Marshall's sweatshirts today to go to the hospital and thank goodness we didn't have to be outside much, but brrrrrrrr, it was cold!
