Dustin Diamond has completed his first round of chemotherapy following his cancer diagnosis, and he will schedule another round in the near future, TMZ reports.
The former "Saved by the Bell" star is still in the hospital as he deals with stage 4 small cell carcinoma, which is more commonly known as advanced lung cancer.
Dustin, who famously played Screech on the beloved teen sitcom, will begin physical therapy, his team tells the webloid. While recovering, Dustin is reading fan mail, learning new songs on his bass guitar, playing video games and making fan videos on social media.
The actor, TMZ said, "is keeping a positive outlook and is looking forward to spending more time with his girlfriend."
On Jan. 11, Dustin was hospitalized after feeling uneasy and experiencing pain all over his body. He also discovered a lump in his throat. Dustin's medical team felt it was "likely" cancer, and on Jan. 14, those fears were confirmed.
"It's serious, but we don't know how serious yet," his rep told EW at the time. "He's at an undisclosed hospital in Florida and will probably go home after treatments. We just want him to get well soon."
After his diagnosis, one of Dustin's "Bayside High" classmates revealed that he reached out to the ailing actor.
"I connected with Dustin earlier this evening and although the news of his diagnosis is heartbreaking, we remain positive that he'll overcome this," Mario Lopez tweeted alongside two pictures from the nostalgia-inducing show on Jan. 15. "Praying for him & his family and for a speedy recovery. God Bless."
That same day, Tiffani Thiessen posted a photo of Dustin on her Instagram Story and wrote, "Thinking of you Dustin."
