My first CyberKnife treatment is at 4PM today.  I know I should be relieved to start knocking down my brain tumors.  Instead, I just can’t help but feel that I’m crossing a threshold whose significance I have barely comprehended.

    I finished targeted radiation of my brain 2 months ago for 5 lesions. I am sitting at a hotel this evening near MD Anderson waiting on results from scans today to see how it worked. It is traumatic, but i am getting through it. The steroids are terrible, nausea and fatigue, but it is much easier than WBR. You will be ok, hang in there…

    • Jessica

      You are me in 9 weeks then. I appreciate the solidarity! Did you have chemo for the brain mets or radiation only? I hope your results were good, my friend.

    • Jessica

      Thank you, Robin. I’m starting to realize that when the toughest fights are needed, I have the least amount of say in the matter. It takes some of the bravery out of the fight; right now I feel like I’m barely cowering.
