MRI Update

Yet another MRI report after my MRI this morning:
So the old tumor is still shrinking (which is great).
But there is a new growth area (which is NOT great).
Next MRI is scheduled for mid March. Change of chemotherapy because of the new growth area... I will stop taking the CPT-11 and switch to CCNU along with Avastin.
Love to all. Thank you for your prayers.

Time for bread now...

Is it time to go to bread yet?
(I have already posted this... it's just too funny to not post again.)

Denver and Hair

I went to Denver last week. It was fun!
This sign was on Callie's door...
Best friends!
This afternoon I told my mom, "Hey mom, my bangs keep falling on my forehead." She replied with, "Well Rae, you have a short line of hair on your scar that hasn't quite grown out yet. I think it's pushing your bangs down on your forehead."

The end.

MRI Update #34,789

MRI Update:
There is some fluid (causing the spongy, cone head swelling) between my skull and brain lining but that isn't super uncommon after brain surgery. No problems with wound healing, bleeding, no pressure areas (swelling), no new growth areas. The old tumor seems to be doing something weird. It is still too soon to see what the Avastin/CPT-11 will do to this tumor. Another MRI in one month and Avastin/CPT-11 every two weeks. I was at the hospital for 10 hours today. It was miserable.

So, all in all, it was a gad (good/bad) report.
