Dada’s note: I named and scheduled this post a few months ago. At the time I was just thinking of the famous video game Shadow of the Colossus and how much bigger Dennis is than Chaplin, but the title has taken on a darker shade of meaning in light of Dennis’s diagnosis last week.
Today is Dennis’s final palliative radiation treatment. After this, we wait to see if, when, and by how much his pain is alleviated. This treatment is not intended to cure or kill the tumor, which can’t be done, but we do hope it will make him feel better and give him a good quality of life for at least a few more months.
