Congrats. Awesome for you. Had my original resection in2012. Also golf ball sized. Crept back around 2019 and recently showed aggressive growth. Last biopsy Mar. 2022 had it reclassified as glioblastoma. Bad stuff.

My sight is decent enough to navigate the world. Lost a bunch of roast veggies from my plate before dinner. Ibeheeled to my left and was unable to make out anopen fridge door. Oh well.

Better to focus on the positive right now. Seems as though my typing on my phone is waay better today than since surgery on 10/12. Not sure what changed, but I'll take it. One foot on front of the other is how we do these things, right?

Yeah.Just plain sucks. in a holding pattern now. Henry Forord Hispital teamis going to review the biopsy and provide me some sort if plan of attack moving forward from here. My head is weighed down by the fear they come up with nothingtoo helpful.

They decided on gamma knife- type radiation therapy and some old-school

Chemo. I live to fight some more, I guess.
