Radiation Is Over If You Want+Pablo Pic Post

At 8:30 a.m., we walked out of the radiation oncology lab for what we hope will be the last time. Radiation is over! The only thing that will bring us back to that location is to visit our friends who work there. From our first day there, they treated Pablo like family. Even today, when he and I were inadvertently 30 minutes late for our appointment!

Our work is not done though. At 7:30 a.m. tomorrow, we will start the multi-hour process of a GFR, a kidney function test that goes down in the Nuclear Medicine lab at CHLA. After that, we see Dr Mascarenhas. He's going to check Pablo out, to be sure he's ready to start the five day in-patient chemo treatment that's scheduled to begin Wednesday. We will check into the hospital Wednesday morning, and if everything goes to plan, we'll be on the way home Sunday or Monday.

Meantime, check out these cool Pablo pics that Grady and Polly sent me today:


Never one to walk when he could run, Pablo can ascend the stairs in a few swift strokes. Photo by Grady.

Polly caught Pablo reading the morning paper the other day. How adorable are these pics? Note: these shots are not staged.
