Friday was M’s Gamma Knife with Dr. L. The Gamma Knife itself went well, uneventful. The news though, sucked.
Let’s backtrack, after the last post, I was able to read M’s MRI report… we misheard, there were three, not two, new tumors with evidence of activity that might be a fourth. Okay, we figured maybe that possible fourth would grow enough to be zapped.
It did, along with six more. Yep. When they did the MRI in preparation for the Gamma Knife, they found ten brain tumors. The three green pea sized ones from December? Now chick pea sized. With seven green pea sized ones joining them.
All ten got zapped, but how many are waiting in the recessess, ready to grow? I guess we’ll find out at the next MRI at the end of April.
In the meantime, M will have a CT Scan at the end of March… we’ll get those results April 11th.
Until then? Hope he doesn’t get the flu or a cold or that anything else goes wrong. It’d be nice if his pain could keep decreasing. Regaining fine motor control and feeling in his hands, losing the numbness in his feet… any of that would be a bonus as well.
