    Hello all. Thank you very much for the advice earlier on my braun tumor. I am about 20 days out and feeling much better. I finished the brain radiation and weaning off of steroids. PET and MRI look good so for now we will continue on.
    I am getting better everyday wirh my stroke. It’s a conscious decision to pay attention to the right side even tho I can’t feel it. I have great OT and PT making me stronger everyday.
    I will be starting a clinical trial with Temodar starting next Monday. Now if we can just keep the brain clean we will be good. I’m feeling positive and hoping to get back to kicking cancers ass.
    Thank you all for the thoughts.

    Kellie(from Iowa) fighting my way back from a stroke. I will beat this. I will. Cancer can kiss my ass

      Kellie Sue,

      You will beat this!   Glad your feeling better and have such a great attitude.  I've been on steroids for 8 weeks. The steroids have really beat my body up but will hopefully be off soon.  

      Next year will look back at this as just one more major complaint and moving on.

      Kellie,

      which temodar trial?  I am very close to choosing one myself.  I am leaning towards Tufts' high dose trial.  (Sorry I don't have the # with me right now….)
