Latest Journal Update

update- bear with me

Liza here-

Well I am a week out from brain surgery and am doing well as far as I am concerned. Sorry about typos. I do find my brain is processing a little more slowly these days. I have lots of help and great friend and family support.  The initial pathology report were good and said that the tissure was abnormal scar tissue. Still waiting on the final pathoogy.  I get my staples out tomorrow and will will almost be weaned off the heavy steroids. Hoping to get off the anti seizure meds as well.  I am taking it slowly and realizing that I did just have surgery.  I belive that my treatment plan for my cancer will resume as previous and won't change.  I shold be able to go back onto my chemo as I belive my scar is healing nicely.  I am scheduled to see my oncoogist later this week on Friday.  So all in all things are well. I apprecaite all the well wishes and help you are providing. Liam can give you a more informative update as I was still asleep when initial reports came out.
