    Knute's MRI shows the bleed, but no new tumors and no growth in the radiated tumors!  Yesterday new med or combination  gave him relief from the constant headache he's had since admission.  He slept hard for 2 hours and then "performed" in a variety of ways.  Practiced sitting, and the stood with help.  Repeating twice.  He was joking with me and remembered all his visitors while I was at work.

    So this is a detour on the road to his next therapy not a dead end.  His mel doctors will push things back a month and we'll see if he is ready!  He has such a fighting spirit, although not a lot of patience so this slow regain of physical control will be challenge enough for both of us.

      A tough road ahead for sure but you two have been in tough battles before.  Tell Knute we're thinking of him.  I'm so sorry about the set back though.

        I was so hesitant to open your posting, however, was so pleased that you have some good news. Treat this as just another bump in the road and hopefully his treatments will resume soon. Look after yourself too, Pam.
