Let the HEALING begin!
Well, it's the night before Macey goes in for her first radiation treatment. It's also the first night that she begins taking her chemo pills. Along with these she has to take anti-nausea meds, steroids for swelling, anti-seizure meds, antibiotics, and sometimes Oxycodone if she feels uncomfortable. Mix this with the radiation treatments starting tomorrow and our Moo Moo has her plate full (of pills). All of them serve a purpose and all of them will make her more comfortable and protect her. The doctors were positive that because of her age, great health, strength and good attitude, these treatments shouldn't effect her much other than making her feel a little fatigued. Macey is sweet to the core, but also very athletic, has great muscle mass and has pushed several doctors over when they ask her to push with her legs or arms. She is incredibly strong and this will be a great attribute when she begins to conquer this thing.
