Well alot of stuff on this board.....alittle too much for my reponse although I am well aware of everyones troubles and you are in my prayers!

I have brain mets for the 4 time..surgery is out as I as recovering from the 65 staples already done! Raido surgery is my best bet....although surgery and radial surgery were not all inclusive before!

Love ya....all is good! it's only been 2 months since earlier brain mets--oh well !!

Im sorry to hear of the return of the brain mets.I am an icu nurse, and I can't help but think of all that you have been through and how strong you must be physically and mentally. I am hopeful that the radio-surgery will be successful. I hear of many positive results up here at the Seidman Cancer Center in Cleveland.

I'll be keeping you in my prayers.

I hope this will be the last one and radiation will do the trick. You are a survivor and you will do this. I wish you the best. Lori

I echo the sentiments of the others. Just said a prayer that this treatment works and that you give G over at Inspire a run for his record. He is pushing 14 with 2 rounds so you have to go past that.

Thanx All for your consideration!
Only two mets at a time...for a total of 8 I guess, so Inspire "G" has me beat so far!!!

The Docs are battling whether I do Surgery or Radiation. I think the Sterotatc Radiation (gamma knife) is in store ! it's cancer on one side, radiation scar tissue on the other...etc.......tough decision for them (and I am leaving it up to them with my consent), I will go with either direction!!

I feel pretty good though, docs are amazed a bit that it did not stop along the way to the brain !!!

How is Denny C? I have been thinking about you all and him as well?

Best wishes to you all!!! I have little $$ but I am going to Fla again with the family!!

It is amazing how little we want or need these days!!

We had water damage at our house and insurance company is putting us up in hotel in Livonia at 6 and Haggarty. That's me blowing my horn at you from the intersection dude. I hope you have a great holiday weekend. Let us know how the gk goes.
