    Looking good! I had my treatment at Simon Cancer Center, and they were great to me. Try not to expect too much from yourself after your chemo. Get lots of rest and try to eat good foods. Let people take care of you. I know that's hard, but they will appreciate it as much as you will. Blessings to you!!

    Decision Point (tumor was shrunk but cancer has spread to lymph nodes. Continued to grow on chemo.): Decided to try clinical trial in Baltimore at Johns-Hopkins. Am getting ready as soon as we find temporary housing there. Big step!

    Radiation (External radiation ): I did well except for the last 4 or 5. Throat was raw by then, but recovered to normal in a couple of weeks. Didn't have much trouble eating till then.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Didn't lose my hair till after I was finished. Was tired mostly.
