My Incredible Shrinking Monkey
Since I had yet to be contacted by my neurosurgeon, I asked my regular oncologist at my chemo appointment today, "What's up with my brain?"
Evidently, all is well, or on it's way to being well on that front. The spot is shrinking into non-existence.
Last October, she had taken me off of Avastin due to kidney troubles which, once resolved in February, allowed me to go back on it. She believes that going off the Avastin caused the growth, and going back on it smacked it back down. Which is good for now, but it also holds some uncertainty for the future - which I suppose you live with when you have cancer regardless.
So for now, we'll stick with the monkey theme and say that we've kept my crazy monkey at bay.
Thanks to everyone for their kind thoughts and prayers.
Love to all.
