Hurry up and Wait

It’s been a while, once again, but after staring at my computer screen for about two weeks, I think I can eke out a blog post.

The gamma knife surgery went as planned. I won’t go through the whole spiel as to how it’s done again, but you can read about that here. As it was the previous two times, getting the head frame attached was the most painful part. Followed closely by waiting with said head frame for about 8 hours.

Now we wait again for my follow up MRI at the end of this month. Hopefully it will show improvement in the metastases. I’m still suffering from the same side effects I was last time I posted – nausea, fatigue, yada yada – but since they’ve become part of my daily life now, even I have grown tired of talking and reading about them (which explains the brevity of this post).

On the home front, we had the pleasure of Cas’s company for about a week here, before he drove down to Virginia yesterday for his summer internship in D.C. at NAMFE. Hard to believe he’s heading into his senior year and Jasper is heading into his high school senior year. With the help of my medical team, I plan on being around to see both these kids graduate.

  1. with everyone praying for you, and sending so much love, your cancer cells have to shrink—damn cancer–. I want to talk to you so bad and hear your voice but I know how you hate that phone so I will contend with e-mails. You have my deepest love forever.
