Hello Everyone! Keala here. Mom isn’t feeling well today so I’m acting as scribe.
We saw Gordon Watson, the radiation oncologist, on Wednesday. He’s pretty sure they got the two tumors they were after! There is still some swelling though so it’ll take a little while til we can see for sure what is going on. He also said they over-radiated so we are dealing with some radiation necrosis. I’m taking the steroid dexamethazone to try and help me recover and help the brain swelling go down. It’ll be a long recovery over the summer but our hopes are high! I also went to see an ENT and he suggested physical therapy that will hopefully help me gain back some of my equilibrium. In the mean time I am very grateful for family and friends who are helping me so that I don’t have to be in the hospital. Loving all the warm weather too!
Love to all, Melanie (and Keala)
