We found out this morning as Nick was getting ready to go in for his first radiation treatment that this treatment will ONLY shrink the tumor (if the tumor does indeed respond). There is talk of possible chemo following the radiation. Nick is still in a lot of pain. They are trying to get it to where it's manageable through steroids and pain medicine. Sometime today he is having a scan done on his upper body to check for additional tumors.
We are trusting and believing in Jesus' name that there are NONE. They're going to take things step by step, and that begins with treating what they're aware of right now. Not sure of any release dates as of yet...probably early next week sometime, but they're seeing how he does with the pain.
Will update later if I get any additional info. Thank you for your continued prayers and support.
Also, he is able to see visitors for short periods of time. He is room 334 at the Mayo Clinic.
