Do you know just how much I lurve you, Capt't? LOL!   And to the rest of you.. thank you so much for the wishes.

Ok, here goes...

UPDATE:

Well, the films are definately showing something going on... dr doesn't want to use the term "necrosis" BUT, did comment that "the CK radiation is definately working! Just too soon to say more"  UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  He also confirmed it shrunk.  YAY!  So, as of today...... it's looking positive.... I tried to get him to say "so, you are seeing beginning stages of necrosis? and he would not say it".... I think he's just playing it safe.  Dang dr's and malpractice insurance! Double UGH!!!!!!  BUT, knowing he said "the CK radiation is definately working as there are indicators of it AND it has gotten smaller".... I think extra mug o' grogs are in order for everyone!

I'm seeing the CK team on Monday for some headache issues... so, will tell them what a great job they did, the films and me are living proof and heck no... no way am I questioning my decision... as neither should you!

Stay healthy folks... onward and upward to wellness! :)

You have given so much of your love, time and huggles (you should patent that) that we are all rapt that the good news is heading your way.

Without wanting to be repetitive

WOO HOO

Ok, here goes! OFFICIALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!

The CK is working! We have beginning stage of tumor death!!!!!!!!!!!
[/color] [/b]

(Captn', you and your chants of Die, booger, Die have paid off!)


HECK YA! I saw Dr. Mehatvan (btw, I am his "AN CK BI Poster Child!). He walked in all smiles..... the films show confirmation and I just got the best wedding/holiday present ever. My folks were in tears when I told them. As you all know, I lost a sister to an astrocytoma (malignant brain tumor) and my family wanted me to have micro-surgery on my AN.... but I opted for CK and so dang thrilled I did. I am walking proof that radio-surgery does work, that this booger is dying and my life is moving on as best as it can.

time to celebrate folks. It's official and the booger is dying.... Thank you all SO very much for the love, support, mug o' grog, huggles, shoulders I have soaked with tears, good ears that are now deaf from me talking into, etc..... I just can't thank you all enough!

xo
