Topic: First bit of good news

Dad had a mapping done and he is a candidate for sirispheres. He will be the sixth patient at his hospital to receive them, t the first with cc. His doctor was bright from another hospital to start the program. He did theraspheres previously, and did over 24,000 of these procedures there.

We also found out the cancer has not metastasized, which was a big worry considering jow it was growing while on chemo, and it had been 8 weeks since any treatment.

The beads will be injected in the right lobe in 2 weeks, and the left 2 weeks later if dad does okay the first time. I will update when we get an appointment date and time.
