Madalynn's Radiation Treatment

Yesterday Madalynn had her radiation treatment done at the Summerlin Hospital to see about her Kidneys. She was a trooper and did very good and the radiation did what it was suppose to do. It went through her blood, into her kidneys, then down into her bladder and then out her catheter. It took four nurses and three tries to hold her down to get in IV in her little foot. I must say that was the hardest part. The catheter didn’t bother her at all. When they did an ultrasound on her, she screamed during that. I think it was the cold jelly and the pressure. But during the main treatment she slept and did great. We find out more and what our next step is on Sept. 11th.

Glad to hear the first step went okay. The good thing is that modern technology allows doctors to do amazing things!
