Day 47 Update - 29DEC08


Joshua getting ready to make his mask.
Molding the mask.
All done!

Joshua went to the Hospital today and got a spinal tap and chemo. He also did the prep work for his radiation treatments which will begin next monday. They made a custom mask for Joshua's head, which he will get to keep after the treatments are done (he is very excited about this). Josh got a CT scan and a custom body sled as well. We were back home early this afternoon and spent the day playing and resting. Josh did very well with all of the treatments and procedures and hopefully will not run another fever from the meds.
