Oliver's Last Treatment

Thursday, February 11, 2010 - Today was Oliver's final radiation treatment down in Iowa City. In about a month he will have a follow up MRI to see if the tumor has shrunk at all.

This is how I spent many visits down in Iowa City... watching the guys on their iPods. After we found out about Oliver's condition, Ed went out and bought an iPod touch for Oliver to play with during the long car rides and in the waiting rooms. VERY good Christmas gift I must say!

Ollie all finished! He never had to be put under sedation once! He did so great!!!

The aftermath... I'm glad I didn't have to clean that up!

He did such a good job throughout all of his treatments! The staff down at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics were all FANTASTIC!!! So many people asked why we would travel for 3 hours a day for a 10 minute treatment and it's because they were all so great and did so much for the kids!!!

I love that story with the silly string. It cracks me up.
