...you have an inoperable brain tumor.


Welp, I guess that post in April was ominous.. or just wrong. Your head did hurt that bad.

Shortly after my last post, my dr ordered an MRI which revealed a brain tumor. Inoperable, but surgery was necessary to create a drain for the CSF that was building up, causing really bad headaches and vomiting. After a month of living in the neuro ICU at Columbia Presbyterian, I am home, doing radiation and chemotherapy (Temodar).

The tumor is an Anaplastic Astrocytoma, they think. Specifically they are calling it "high grade."

I'm going to start writing in this blog again as an outlet, and hopefully to connect with other people online going through this journey.

I am treating at MSKCC and Columbia Presbyterian.
