I ended up going to ER mid June with seizures, they did a cat scan and found a single brain met in my parietal lobe. Began on Dex methasone to keep the swelling down and with no more seizures was able to to go and have SBR in 5 gy in one sitting. Pretty amazing technology. So for now, I guess this dead tissue will live in my brain, and now I just have to wean off these steroids. They let me bring the mask home and I have an awesome pic, I wanted to share with you but can't post the pic!! Anyway sending healing love and light to you all

Every time I see your picture I smile thinking of you and your son dancing together. I so enjoyed those YouTube videos! You've got a good looking son! He takes after mom I guess? :)

Thinking of you and praying I know how hard it can be to deal with this. I had my fair share of hospital stays and steroids are horrible. Sending hugs and prayers your way.

One sitting is incredible. I just had ten sittings of more generalized full brain radiation. I also asked if I could keep the mask. It really is cool; the ozone smell during the "zaps". The red and blue lights that appear. The addition of Dexamethazone is nearly miraculous. You hang in there. Keep us updated.
