Pablo got a call from the hospital yesterday and for a change, the phone call relayed some good news. It turns out that Pablo has been selected to try a new form of radiation therapy for his treatments that start in August - 'Tomotherapy'. This treatment is quite new and is starting for the first time here in Ottawa in August - perfect timing for when Pablo is supposed to start radiation. Tomotherapy is more accurate than the conventional radiation Pablo was supposed to be getting and it is even better than the proton therapy (gamma knife) that we had looked into! I haven't had time to do research on Tomotherapy but Pablo is very lucky to be getting this kind of radiation. WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
