Change of Plans

I went to the doctor yesterday and apparently my brain MRI looks really bad. The smaller cancer areas have gotten bigger and there are new ones showing. The chemo is not going to work anymore, so we've had to change our treatment plans again. I am getting whole brain radiation, which means they will irradiate my entire brain. I am a little concerned about this since it can cause short term memory loss and even dementia over time. I'll get three weeks of radiation, 5 days a week. After that, I will get another port put into my head for the spinal fluid chemo. They hope to get me started next week.

I am stunned by this news. This wasn't what I was expecting. My new chemo shoes sure didn't help me, even though everyone at the hospital loved them! My cousin actually wants to burn them, but I don't think I'm going to go that far! I would appreciate any prayers during this time. Thank you!

  3. Put on your pink sparkly shoes and enjoy them to the hilt! May they bring a big smile to your face every time you look at them. You have my prayers, Tiffany, for your health and for your inner strength during this extraordinarily tough time.
