Command Center

Hi All, We sit, we visit, we eat - a lot - look out belly here come the steroids. Last time I was on them I gained 40 lbs. This time I'll try to keep to low-carb goodies.

NEWS Flash!!!!!Nurse Sis just got THE call--honest--we just now hung up..........They did a PET SCAN yesterday at major hospital. Told us we would know more in 24-36 Hours - go to temp. home and wait. If the picture lights up like a Christmas tree, it was new tumor growth which they would immediately Cyber-knife.

IT DID NOT GLOW!!!!!! Okay, that is a big one out of our way. What is still causing the symptoms in leg, etc. is more of an unknown. They want to keep close track of everything with follow-ups in six weeks. So, I do not have brain cancer. This according to the Drs. is the best possible results.

No more has gone numb,so if the meds can hold their own, I've got a toehold here. Tomorrow I see my great friend, Tony, who is wonderful at helping me visualize. Together I'm sure we can come up with a Command Center of operations to start shrinking that swelling.

Tomorrow we drive south - to Hero and Kid Sis. Thank you all for the holding up--as I said to one friend--I must be getting heavy--she said "no" spirits don't weigh that much.

Love and Light

I am so happy to hear that there was no tumor; have been on pins and needles since I spoke with you last Saturday. Hope the swelling goes down and that your mobility is restored. Thoughts, prayer and love are with you. Tess
What's wrong with your granddaughter?

Hadn't know until I checked out your and (kid sis's) blogs that you were on the pins and needles you were. Obviously, I am so relieved it is not a tumor, although I'm sorry to hear about the partial paralysis. I continue to send good thoughts and prayers your way. Love, Charlie
