Kim's Missing Lung - the cancer has now spread to the brain through the blood.
I saw the neurosurgeon today and he has booked the brain tumour removal for Monday morning at 11 am. The tumour is 2 cm in size and is just under the skin on the right side of the brain. I will be sedated but awake during the procedure as they need to monitor my motor skills as they are removing it. He said there is no guarantee that they can get it all but they will keep removing as long as all my functions keep working.
There will be radiation sometime afterwards. It needs time to heal first and to let the swelling go down as radiation causes swelling also.
Kelly will keep you all up to date.
Kim...................10 months +..... and wishing I was going through withdrawal instead of this!
