Hi George.  Good to hear from you.  Sorry to hear you are in pain - I hope your doctor can help you with that. I have had a quiet day - took the dog on the beach and popped out for a chilli this evening with my hubbie and now watching TV.  The family are all away this weekend so we will maybe pop out for a drive tomorrow - I would like to do some gardening but its a bit too chilly and I am more tired than usual. Hope you and the family have a good day and speak soon x

Hi Max

See from your posts on other threads that despite your own difficult journey you are still thinking/helping others during the early hours.Guess your mind is too busy to rest just now and just wanted to let you know I am keeping you in my thoughts.  My sleep pattern is still all over the place (overthinking everything is not helping!!) and I too find solace (not sure this is the right way of putting it though!!) in being able to chat to others on such difficult journies as being alone with thoughts is not easy.  Be kind to yourself, much love and hugs,  Jules

Dear Max

I haven't been on this site for a while but like others I felt very emotional on hearing your news.  I am glad there is something that can potentially be done about the brain tumour, so fingers crossed with that.  It is very difficult to deal with feelings of hopelessness so this is at least something on the horizon.  It sounds as though you are getting a lot of support which is great, even though this means accepting increased dependency.

As you know I've not escaped lightly either although I am just one year into this journey.  I feel ok though the last scan at the beginning of December showed up something "suspicious" - possible enlargement of a lymph node under my arm - worse case scenario is the cancer is gaining in resistance to the Paclitaxel.  So I am having another CT scan at the end of next week in case we need to change the treatment.  I hope not because I have settled into the routine, but who knows, cancer is certainly snapping at my heels too.

I know this pales into insignificance by comparison with the progression you are seeing.  I want to say you have a special place in my heart and I am praying for you.  You are an inspiration and I hope you can squeeze out the quality of life you need for a long time yet.

Hugs,

Gill

Hello my dear forum buddies - I cant thank you enough for your support and am sorry I have been absent for a while - was a bit lost for a few weeks but now accepting the new situation and coming to terms with it.

I have had the go-ahead for brain cyberknife and have had preparations - the treatment will be on Wednesday this week.  I havent felt too well but have had a much better day today thank goodness. Apart from a harsher chemo regime starting on the 13th, I really dont know what else may be done over the next few weeks to try and stabilise me a little - but I will let you know when I can.  Our lovely daughter and her boyfriend have decided to marry within the next 3months - so that is wonderful news!

Sending so much love to you all and know that I am so lucky to have you all routing for me.  Take care x

Hi Max,

Not surprised you needed a bit of time out there..although we missed you! 

Delighted they have agreed to a bit of CK and with another bash of chemo. Should give the Big C a "Back off for a bit, I've got a wedding to get to!" 

They wouldn't do CK for my boy cos they didn't think he would have long enough to get the benefit of it.. I am really pleased that they have reckoned it's not your time yet! 

best luv
