Karl starts next treatment

We saw Dr. Wyzinski today and Karl is recovering ok from the surgeries. It looks like brain radiation will start next week. He is also going to do Temedor, Thalidomide and chemo for at least 6 months. He will start with 2 to 4 weeks of interferon injections- not as toxic as the infusions along with the Temedor and Thalidomide. He has some uncomfortable growths under his arm where we had two spots taken out back in Dec. We have to go in and get Dr. Beistch, his surgeon, to clean it out, they don't think it's cancer, just complications from removal of the two spots one that was melanoma and one that wasn't.
Other than having side effects from the antiseizure medicine making Karl tired, loopy and slurring like a drunk, things here are peaceful.
