Mask making in progress

Steve's mask making has been done but not without much fanfare. It was a very hard thing to go through since he is claustrophobic. The mesh mask is laid on his face very warm, pulled taut and fastened to the table to dry. He is then put thru the scans to pinpoint the exact spot the radiation will be applied.

They will call for one more appointment and then the 15 days of radiation, Monday thru Friday will begin. Sounds like a sunburn and fatigue will be the most noticeable side effects.
