Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. It was nearly two years ago I had a craniotomy to remove a glioblastoma tumor (6/18/2020).  Since then I have had the standard treatment of 60 Gray radiation over 45 days along with Chemo therapy (Temozolomide). And using an Optune Tumor Treating Field device. I've been getting MRIs about every three months to check for disease progression or recurrence. Things have been going well until today. Results of latest MRI 6/2/2022 indicate tumor regrowth occurring at the site of the original tumor so am awaiting appointment with neurosurgeon for another craniotomy. At the advice of friends, I am going to try using caring-bridge  for providing updates.
