Brain Cancer week update 4-19

MRI was clear – no signs of tumor growth.  I have a hole in my brain from surgery, but that’s expected. Prepare yourselves for the ‘another hole in my head’ jokes.  My oncologist said that the only better thing he could say was ‘you’re cured’…which of course, he can’t say. They haven’t given him a crystal ball yet.

He also thinks that I’m probably getting the vaccine (remember it’s a double blind study 50% get the vaccine, 50% get the placebo and only the drug company can say who’s in which group), which of course he doesn’t know for sure (and stated that clearly), but I’ll take it.

My platelet count is up to 123, so I can start my next round of chemo this week. yeah.

It’s a good day. We’ll remain vigilant and fight on.

And if I can add, please say a prayer or send some healing energy (whatever your preference) to the families of those lost and those injured in Boston.
