Cyberknife Part 2

Well .... today was my 5th and LAST Cyberknife treatment.





I had a brief graduation ceremony with the staff where they presented me with my official Jason Mask (left).











This mask was specially fitted for me out of warm wax poured over my face during a brain mapping study. We became very "close". Not exactly like Wilson and Tom Hanks ... but then again ... Wilson kept his distance ... My little buddy fit just like Jim Carrey.









It was clamped to the bed and held my head in place for the duration of the treatments.

Looks claustrophobic ... huh?

NOW you know why I used Mother's Little Helpers for the first two sessions!






Once I got used to the mask ... It really wasn't that bad.

The treatments were painless, there were no side effects, no pain ... PLUS I developed super human strength ... I think I even grew a couple of feet in the process ... my color has changed a little ...

But here's the really special part: Somehow ... the cyberknife taught me how to tap dance. And one of my doctors signed me up to do a Broadway tour of Young Frankenstein with him next year.

See? You never know how things will turn out in the end.

Glad things are going well for you! Wonder if I can get one of those masks...I could use a new talent. Something that requires sleezy music and a pole. I hear that's where the money is :)

@Toni ... Forget the mask .... just go with the pole!
