The plan for Nicolas going forward will be as follows:

Chemotherapy – consists of two treatments, 4 weeks apart. He will require a hospital stay of about 3 days with each treatment barring any unforeseen difficulties.

Second surgery – to remove the remaining tumor

Radiation – this is an intensive out-patient treatment. He will require 33 treatments, 5 days a week for 6 1/2 weeks.


The plan was to start chemo on January 30th, however due to the meningitis, this will be pushed back a week or two. So, Nicolas likely will not be finished his full course of treatment until about June, 2012.
