Gammaknife treatment today

Kinda bad news. They discovered three more brain tumors during the pre-treatment MRI scan. So they are treating a total of five. Doesn't alter the treatment time much, just fifty minutes.

But emotionally that is a tough blow, it means rhe cancer is blooming pretty rapidly. At least for now they are on top of the brain tumors and catching them early and small. It does mean they will scan again in thirty days. And if there are more at that time, the treatment discussion moves to whole brain radiation versus spot treatment.

Trying to get her to stay focused on the present and not project too much. The neurologist was helpful and reassuring when we discussed the whole brain treatment. But Meagan is understandably upset.
