I went to my consultation appointment this morning. It turns out they have already decided to give me the radiation based on my brain MRI. They basically met with me to prep for the treatment. It turns out to be a no brainer treatment for them to do (no pun intended). It’s a one time treatment for an hour. There is little to no side effects. They said I wouldn’t even feel a thing. They proceeded to make me a face mask to keep my head still for the procedure and took a scan to map my brains. They also took another MRI, more detailed than the one I came in with. It would take them a week just to map out everything then it’s one treatment and done! Impressive!
I told them I have a trip next Friday, they found an opening on Thursday, 11/7 at 9am! They said I could get the treatment and go back to my normal life the same day, fly the next day and do whatever. I guess medical miracles do happen everyday in that department, except they call them procedures! Wow!
Wow. Do you get to keep the face mask? Sounds crazy, sounds amazing, sounds unbelievable. One hour treatment? Face mask? Brain map? …jump on a plane, do tai chi, take a tea break…and life goes on. 😀

I don’t know if I get to keep the face mask as a souvenir or not, I could ask! lol!
