Day 42 - Radiation Burns

The stats:
- weight loss: 25 lbs
- number of radiation treatments remaining: 3
- number of chemo treatments remaining: 1
- gallons of mucous produced: immeasurable

Home from the hospital and resting most of the day. Successful PEG tube feeding accomplished. It was a little strange when Michael coughed during the feeding, but everything went down.

Radiation burn on his neck has been steadily getting worse. It hurts and needs more care.

Instead of me rambling on today, I thought I would upload some recent pictures. WARNING: These images may be disturbing for some
