ansley is in jacksonville, florida, getting proton radiation 5 days a week for 6 weeks, in addition to her chemotherapy. i don't understand a lot of it, but they have to radiate the area in which the tumor grew, even though it is currently shrinking. it was wrapped around her eustachian tube, so there's a 50% chance she'll lose hearing, and a slimmer chance that she'll lose sight (due to tumor location) as a result of the radiation. bless her sweet little heart.

  1. I'm so glad that she is getting proton therapy. It's what I had, and it has fewer side effects both long and short term. Thoughts and well wishes to her and her family, and to you for caring so much.
