Updaters: Metastatic Brain Cancer

OK some updates, because it's been a minute I guess. 

  • Mama Monkey Butt has completed her radiation series. Or whatever the technical term for that is. 

What.. I think ten treatments of radiation, driving from Jefferson to Lawrenceville, round trip about 60 miles. This wasn't a long procedure either from what I gather. They weren't forced to sit in the office for an extended period of time.

  • They've cut the dosage back on the steroids, which she's hating.  They really helped her nose too.  "Magic drugs" I think she called them.

From what she told me today she will have more scans done in a couple of weeks to check the cancer in the brain.  We're seeking healing thoughts and prayers from those who care that this radiation worked and we can get back to focus on getting her cancer in remission. 

No end in sight right now, because they've yet to get the right chemo to do the trick on her cancer.  But don't lost hope, because we're definitely not!  They can't tell us she's terminal, because we don't know the meaning of that word!

Goodnight my friends and Thank you!


  1. It's a long road, but it's headed in the right direction. I'm praying for her!

  2. Healing thoughts and prayers on their way and will continue my friend. Just have to stay focused and positive.

  3. Mama is still in my prayers, family too!

  4. As always, thinking good thoughts for your mama and your family.x

  5. Aww you and your mum are in my thoughts!
