Radiation treatment.

Well we got to the hospital pretty early, around eight a.m. When we got there they told us that they were going to hook Sean up with an IV and go ahead and do a CAT scan before the treatment. They also molded and made a mask that he would be wearing for the treatment.
I figured it would take a few but it really only took about thirty minutes and he came back out into the lobby. They told us we could go get breakfest and that he needed to be back by 11:15 a.m. We went down to the cafeteria and had some breakfest(lunch to me) and walked around until about eleven. When we went back to the radiation floor we waited close to an hour before they came and got Sean. They told us he was going to get treatment and afterwards we could come in and see him. It didn't take as long as I had expected and when the nurse came out and got us I was suprised. When we went in I was expecting him to look drowsy or something but he looked normal and ready to leave. They removed his IV and the nurse instructed us on what to watch for for the next day and a half. They told us that it would be a few weeks before they checked him again and everything went well with the treatment. Sean now has an appointment with the lung doctor the first of May. the good thing is we will get a few days to rest before having to go back to the doctor which is good.
