Update on Les

Some more info about Les's lung cancer. He got a report yesterday that said his lung cancer is non-small cell carcinoma, Stage IIIA. Les has not done research about prognosis, so I will not put what I know about it here. If Les doesn't want to know, I don't want to be the one to force it onto him.

Les is in remarkably good spirits. He has worked some, but it is physically difficult for him. Any time spent at work means the entire following day is spent on the couch.

He has been measured and marked for radiation and begins it today. He will have radiation every weekday for 25 session. He also will be getting chemotherapy during the time he is on radiation therapy. Les doesn't know the "flavor" of chemo. He will an infusion every Monday for 5 weeks, then an infusion every 3rd Monday for 4-5 months.
