Head Case

Screwed in the head.
Screwed in the head. (Also, I have a metal brace on.)

 

I successfully underwent the gamma knife last week. The doctors found a third tumour, and gave it the radioactive boot along with the other two. All is well, and I actually look forward to renewing chemo in a few weeks.

Both the MRI and the Gamma itself are like Obama’s policy on eastern Europe: non-invasive. The only unpleasant part is when they used metal screws to attach a metal frame to my head, to prevent me from moving around during the procedure. Honestly, they could just tell you they will fire multiple laser beams of radiation into your brain and, trust me, people would not move a millimetre.

Here are some pics. (One of the side effects must be laziness, since it’s taken me five days to post this.)
