Thank you

Y’know, it’s a day like yesterday when I am just so thankful to have started blogging a couple of years ago. I’d just like to say THANK YOU for all of your very kind and thoughtful comments yesterday and for helping to make me feel unbelievably cared for.

I haven’t heard anything new from my dad, so unfortunately I don’t have any update to pass along to you.

It’s just nice to know that so many people care.  It really means the world to me.

I love this thing we call the “Blogosphere”.  I really do.




Just got off the phone with my dad.

Mom got another CATscan yesterday and was marked for her radiation treatments. They called back this morning and asked if she could go in for her first treatment this afternoon instead of next week.

The idea is that she’ll get five radiation treatments over the course of five days on each of her tumors.

She’s back on steroids to help reduce the internal swelling. She’s been given pain/stomach medication to reduce her pain and reduce her vomiting.

We’ll know more about her brain tumor next week, but that’s the situation as of today.

    1. I guess it just depends on how you look at it.

      It’s nice that she’s getting treatment quickly, but they’re rushing her radiation because of the severity of her health situation.

      So far, we’re doing alright. Next week might be a little tough if we get the results we’re expecting from her neurosurgeon…but we’ll worry about that then.

      Thanks for asking, though.


  1. Thoughts are with you CBG, my ex-mother-in-law has just been through a similar thing, multiple brain tumours and a lung tumour that they have been treating with radiation therapy. She’s just finished 12 weeks of it and is doing really well and the treatment appears to have done the trick. She’s only young too, 68. I feel for you and your family, hang in there. Sending love from down under xx
