We had another quiet day yesterday, but by the late afternoon the headaches that had reappeared last week worsened. This morning she was still in pain and threw up. Though she kept her medicine down after that, she had to be intubated during the treatment today for precautionary reasons (they rigged it temporarily so that her mask would still fit). Everything went well, but when she came out she was still not herself, so the radiation oncologist stopped by to see her. I felt much better after his consultation. He reassured us that the headaches are a result of the expected swelling the beam induces, and that when headaches start early in treatment like this they usually resolve within a week. Staying on top of the pain with motrin made for a fun rest of the day, including baby dolls and tea in the playroom and tag around the playground.
