Journal entry by Jim Krzyzanowski

I had my final Radiation Therapy session today.  That was 30 sessions.  I ended up losing a little over 10 pounds.  I still don't have that great of an appetite.  I still get tired every day.  And I ended up losing a bunch of hair above and behind my right ear.  Hopefully the symptoms will go away and I'll be back to "normal" in about a month.  I don't know how long or if my hair will come back.  I'll have an MRI in about 3 months.  And I'll have a doctor appointment to discuss what, if anything happened.  Then I'll have an MRI about every 3 months for awhile; then every 6 months; then every year; assuming everything goes as well as expected.  I posted a couple of pictures showing my bald spot and the mask they had me wear.  I'll continue to keep you posted.  Please keep the thoughts & prayers coming!
