He started out with 3 treatments a week for 3 weeks and then went down to treatments 2 treatments. We saw some progress but when he went down to 2 treatments, he started going backwards again. Our doctor quickly bumped him up to 3 treatments a week again for 11 weeks. We stayed at the Ronald McDonald house to avoid traveling 3 days a week. A one way trip to the hospital was 150 miles.
