One therapy over, another starts
I finished my upper spine radiation yesterday. It's always bittersweet when I finish my radiation because oh I am so thrilled that I don't have that daily often unpredictable (timewise) appointment. But the radiation therapists and other radiation nurses and support staff I see on a daily and/or weekly basis are so incredibly nice, I'll miss seeing them.
Great news about my brain scan. According to the report, there is no cancer in the brain. The surgery, or chemo, or radiation worked. I say this cautiously because my husband said there can be cells that are too small to be seen. But for now, we are very happy. And praise God for his healing and the talent and knowledge and guidance that He gave the doctors.
The next step is do get an MRI of my spine where they radiated several weeks ago. That will be happening tomorrow. And I'll probably be starting a pill form of a chemotherapy soon called Xeloda. It's not supposed to have a negative effect on my mental function, so that's really important to me...especially right now.
(Psalms 30:12 KJV) To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.
