He had a tumor removed from his brain, so for now he is just having radiation on his head. He will have a total of 10 treatments (today was #3.) When the radiation is complete, they will wait 3 days, and then start chemo. The doctor hasn't said anything about radiation on his lungs. Today was a little better, just a little nausea, but no vomiting.
