After a questionable CT scan, Elsa needed further assessment of her lung cancer clinical trial results. In a brief 72 hours with hospitalization and tests, it was determined that the cancer had metastasized to both sides of her brain. Doctors were pleased that it had not metastasized to her spine. The course of treatment was mega steroids and ten days of radiation to her brain. The treatment plan is to kill cancer filaments in both hemispheres and suppress the growth of more cancer filaments. The prognosis is fatal. The treatment plan is to give Elsa as much quality time with family and friends as possible. The task for Reine and Elsa is to plan for hospice.
