Latest Journal Update

quick update

LIza here-

Just a quick update. Met with the oncologist yesterday.  My CT scan was good. No My liver is good. Everything is stable.  This means I can stay on the treatment I am currently on.  It is keeping my stage 4 disease in check.  We went over how I had to get ready for my upcoming surgery.  I then went and did all the pre op tests that were necessary. I will see my oncologist in 6 weeks after I have recovered from surgery.  So now I go about life and wait until Feb 25th when  I will have my brain mapped for surgery. Then on the 27th, they will go in a take out my old tumor.  so on we go.  Thanks for your thought and prayers.
