Hi The last thread was getting a bit cluttered. My wife Grace is scheduled for radiation in early July at full strength. I am trying to organise chemo at the same time as it greatly sensitises the cancer cells for destruction but they seem less keen on that approach although willing to concede it is a rather good idea.
Her deficits in thinking continue, but she appears to be making new connections and can communicate most of the time. Her movement is returning. I am optimistic she can be one of the very few to survive the dreaded GBM with the lowest survival rate of all primary brain cancers.
As to in-laws I think they are returning home soon. My mum will be coming down soon. She is nearly 90 but drives every day and is completely self reliant. However she forgot to eat one day and blacked out and injured herself. She has no healed. My wife gets on far better with her than her own mother by far. Her own mother has serious psychological and mental issues dating back 3 decades and is best kept away.
