New medicine starts today.

Today he started his new seizure-prevention medicine. Over the next five weeks he will ramp the new medicine up while he ramps down the old. The new medicine isn't supposed to make him as tired, and it has much fewer potential long-term side effects. The main warning is it might make him irritable to the point of being hard to live with.

He has lost some of the weight he gained while on the steroids, so they might adjust his chemo pill dosage for next week. The dosage is sensitive to body weight.

He stayed up to see the midnight showing of Transformers last night. He still feels fine...actually very good.
