It is STILL Another Birthday

april152015Sorry for the delay, and nobody wishes it were better news than me. Unfortunately, it’s not. This disease seems to be progressing, albeit slowly for the most part, but progressing. It’s not going to be the birthday we had hoped and prayed for, but it IS still another birthday. There’s something to say about that. One year longer is one more year of memories.

With that said, the new lesion is in the left frontal lobe whereas the other lesions were all in the right hemisphere. The report is attached to this messsage. As it reads in the impression, it is not entirely accurate. My clinical history and how it initially presents on MRIs is very important. These facts coupled with the fact it is showing in the left hemisphere which wasn’t present on the last MRI is troubling.

I needed a break. You have no idea how much I needed a break. I am a broken and beaten down man right now in many ways, but we shall fight on. We have no choice.

I have to undergo another gammaknife procedure. We waited around the clinic for awhile to see if they could fit us in this week, but it didn’t work out. We are now headed home, and will regroup tomorrow. As far as treatment, I have to discuss this with Dr. Ravi on how he wants to move forward. I promise to keep you all updated.

Please continue to pray, hard, for a miracle again. We love you all, and we need you more than ever.
