Good Morning! Just wanted to touch base with all of you after yesterday's second opinion in Jacksonville. The doctor was extremely nice, and after hearing bad news for so many weeks, we finally got a glimmer of hope. After looking at my MRI's Dr. Jaeckle said that he was not so sure that the radiation has not worked. He said that the radiation dye can look like new tumor growth on the image, because the dye can actually leak out and appear like a tumor on the MRI. The bad news is that there were new spots of tumor growth on areas not treated. The bottom line is we need to keep plugging away at this nasty tumor. Today I have another follow-up MRI, and then I finally make a decision about continuing treatment.
Thanks to all of you for your prayers, hopes, and never ending belief that anything is possible.
