Nick has had recent dizziness, and facial weakness. A CT brain scan on 05/11 showed a tumor on the cerebellum. The MRI on the 18th showed 2 others and a host of "tumor dust" and Leptopmengial disease (cancer in the spinal fluid). In order to control the dizziness, lessen the seizures and give Nick a quality of life for the summer, the doctor has prescribed 15 WBRs. Please don't tell me how scary - I already know. He would have nothing without them though, so forward we move.....
My "poster boy" is now Stage IV and I believe has a very short time with us. This is SO Hard to believe as now under seizure meds, he is back to "normal" Nick.
ARGH!!! I'm stunned, incrediably saddened, and at a loss. I'm searching for the impossible and I know it. But it doesn't make it any more possible to stop searching for "hope". Dammit, dammit, dammit!
Love & Hugs to everyone. Sorry to bring this news.
