Radiation is not an option.

Jerry went to another appointment with radiology and had another CT scan. He was informed that he would not be a candidate for radiation. They were also told that he may or may not be contacted tomorrow by the chemo doctor for chemo that may or may not take place any time soon.

Needless to say this is not sitting well with either of them. What does it actually mean for him if he does not receive radiation? Sure his newly transplanted lung will be spared but will he be alive to use that lung? While they are trying to remain positive, their frustrations with Kaiser are growing daily. The fact they have been told that this is a very rapidly growing cancer and now at week 6 since diagnosis and still no plan of action has been put in place.. they are growing doubtful at Kaiser's ability to do anything at this point.

My mom will be calling trying to get some kind of answers tomorrow.
