Entry by Kurt: We got to the doctor very early this morning. Mom got a shot to help keep her white blood cell counts high.
She had a mask taken of her today which she will wear every time they administer the radiation therapy. They are mapping out the exact points where the tumors are and the mask helps them keep the same spot. Today it took about 45 minutes but each radiation treatment will only take about 15 minutes.

This is the head mask she'll be wearing on the table and the special radiation tube she'll be in during each treatment.
