Info from the doctor today

We found out today that once the radiation is over, we need to be ready for him to get really tired. Apparently the steroids that control swelling also keep him amped up. Once radiation stops, they will back off on the steroids, and the doctor wouldn't be surprised if he slept 16-18 hours a day for the next month or so.

He doesn't think he will get tired...but we will see. He did go play Frisbee golf today.

We also thought we might leave him on his own for a few weeks after treatment, but the doctor did not encourage that. It might be boring, but it is still important to have someone there. So I guess one of us will be in Arkansas for at least another 5 weeks.
