maximum radiation

Justin: Mom’s doctor told M&F that she’s getting the maximum allowable radiation therapy and that there will be no chemotherapy as the difference it would make is minimal.  The doctor says eat as much as you can and, if you find you like something, just eat it.  Also, lay off the salt.  Your taste buds cannot pick up the taste anyway, so there’s no point in pouring salt on everything.

Mom is coughing a lot from the time she gets up in the morning until she goes to bed.  She is often tired and cannot stay up late.  The doctor did warn her though that this would be the case.
