Treatment Begins

Today was first day of chemo. Mason swallowed the 3 tablets after lunch today, then 1 hour later his first radiation treatment. The chemo provides a boost for the radiation.
It was Ally's day to crack a smile, she is always bubbly and bouncing around. Tonight's dinner at the Grizzly House was provided by Pancho's restaurant in celebration of Cinco de Mayo. Ally had ice cubes and made silly faces. Mason thought the dinner tasted funny-possibly a side effect. He was so looking forward to tacos. Mason was too tired for rock hunting, but we'll go on an adventure whenever he is ready.
I actually get a little queasy thinking of all the medications he is taking, 21 tablets a day!
We met a beautiful 7- year old girl today that is having radiation treatment too, please add her to your prayers, she has the same rare tumor as Mason. Thanks everyone.

Glad to see you all having goofy moments! Mallory and I stopped by for a quick visit with Maverick tonight. Hope to stop by and spend some time with him soon. I think he has grown a foot since the kids were playing in the snow on Superbowl Sunday. Keeping the entire family in our thoughts and will definitely add that young lady to our prayers as well. Has she been at St Jude's long? Hope the treatments don't take a toll on Mason, just eradicates the tumor. If we send a care pkg to your family is it best to send it to the hospital?
