A closer look at Macey's Radiation Treatments

Since it's the weekend and the hospital was pretty quiet, we were allowed to go back with Macey again to see her get set-up for a treatment.  Also, we took some pictures of her on the table so everyone can see exactly what it is she has to deal with every day.  Alyssa and her boyfriend Camden also got to go and see her getting prepped for treatment.  These treatments have apparently been more broad in scope, targeting a larger area.  The upcoming treatments will start to entail more focused areas of the tumor, destroying its mass.  Macey has started getting pretty bad headaches following the treatments but it seems that a little rest, some good pain meds and some peace and quiet, she starts feeling better within an hour or two.  She has done extremely well on the chemo (no nausea whatsoever) and she's been a real trooper with the radiation as well.  We'll continue to look for little signs that Macey is improving.  We are still pretty early in the game and are hoping to see significant improvement down the road a bit.
