On July 25th, my son Devin was diagnosed with a brain tumor which turns out to be Medulloblastoma. On July 27th, he had brain surgery. There were actually two tumors, and only part of one tumor was removed. One in his brain stem was not touched. August 15, Dev began his treatment. He is getting chemo and then radiation 5 days a week for 6 weeks. Then followup chemo for about a year. Devin is 17. The first week of treatment was very rough, he was throwing up so much that he had to be readmitted to the hospital. But this week he is doing much better. Still, my wife and I are having a hard time adjusting to this new reality. This is all such a shock to me and my family.
