Hi everyone,
last day of radiotherapy today!
That means Thomas has had 15 general anaesthetics( 1 was a dummy run), 14 doses of radiation and 14 mornings without breakfast. Phew, thank goodness that's over with!
Having said that Thomas has coped really well .He has approached each day with enthusiasm even though he has had to be out of the house by 7am and hasn't been able to have breakfast.He has spoken about his special sleeps with anticipation rather than dread.He hasn't complained of feeling sick or exhausted which are common short term side effects. 
The beauty of being three years old I guess, he hasn't got a clue what is happening to his body, the possible side effects, now and in the future.
 Thomas just seems to have bounced back after each session, his main concern is getting some food and what to play with first, he just wants to get back to being a three year old tear away!  I am so proud of him!
The children and young people that we have met along the way are amazing too, we have enjoyed speaking to one particular young man and his mum during our time at radiotherapy( I'm just sad that Thomas was being stroppy and wouldn't have his picture taken with them, lol).
Anyway, on to the next phase of treatment now.I just hope Thomas copes so well again.
Thanks for listening to my ramblings,
much love,
Toni x
