I woke up today morning, took a shower and when I was putting my clothes on. Rafael told me: "I think I'm having a seizure again". So I ran in towell to help him lay down in the sofa and then I remembered doctor told me if a seizure happens again. Put a pill of Lorazepan under his tongue and that will help to stop the seizure. So I did and the seizure stopped. Now he is sleeping. Doctor told me it is the scar that is swollen and not necessary is more cancer in his brain. But we need to control the cancer in the lung. We planned to see the soccer game today. E.U VS Uruguay. Now he is sleeping, so I think I'm going to see the game just myself. I think this is the hard part. When you have a plan and for this cancer suddenly your plan is gone........ I just needed to write about my day. Thank you...

    Know what you mean
    about the having a plan and it getting blown up in your face. We've actually started purposefully NOT making plans, just tentative hopes or ideas of things to do, found that works better. Seems that whenever we have a "real" plan, is when something happens. Sucks. Also sucks to do SO much on your own, not together.

    I know how frightening this can be. I first saw my wife having a small seizure as we were standing in the lobby of a courthouse in New York a couple of months ago as I was about to take the oath to become an attorney. It was supposed to be a very happy occasion but I will always mostly remember the seizure, watching one side of her face suddenly moving uncontrollably and her arm shaking. It happened several more times throughout the day and I knew there was something seriously wrong. Subsequent tests confirmed the cancer had spread to her brain and that it was very swollen from all of the lesions. It just makes you feel totally helpless.
