Just waiting for the doctors now

Cable and internet are hooked up in the apartment now, so time is probably passing faster now. Tony was playing Call of Duty.

We haven't heard from the doctors yet as far as a start date, but expect to this week. They are doing some calculations to figure out how to aim and focus the radiation. Apparently they compare the before-surgery MRI to the after-surgery CAT scans, and do some complex math to figure out exactly where the tumor remnants will be (they can't see them in the scan). It takes awhile; they calculate, check it, check again, have someone else calculate it, then someone else, etc. all to make sure they don't make a mistake. (I am all for no mistakes).

Thanks for your interest and prayers.
