There seems to be some debate about how well things are going, but for better or for worse, Michael Douglas is coming to the end of his first round of treatment for stage four throat cancer.  Douglas has been undergoing a combination of radiation and chemotherapy for several weeks now, and this is his final week.  The official word is that the doctors have been pleased with his progress, and that they don’t see the need to schedule any further treatments, and that his chances are still 80%.  The grapevine, however, has been saying that the reason no further treatments have been scheduled is because there’s nothing else the doctors can do at this point, and Douglas is too weak to be able to handle any further therapy.  I hope those rumors are just fluff, and cancer therapy can certainly take a lot out of a person, but as friends have mentioned, Michael Douglas looks about a decade older than he did a month ago.  Hopefully it’s just fatigue and he’ll start recovering soon.
