Today is a big day! Today Pops goes in for a scan to see if the tumor was receptive to the first round of chemo / radiation. Please keep him in your thoughts. This is a ridiculously nerve wracking moment for him.
I am not sure if we will get to see the scans today or if they’ll give us any indication of the results. I do know we have an appointment with our new specialist at Swedish Neuroscience Institute next week, and we’ll get to go over them then.
Other than that, Pops is starting to feel way better! His mean daughter has been making him eat tons of fruits and veggies and other “icky” stuff, he’s gained 2 pounds (woo!) and has WAY more energy this week. The vaccine gave him a severe case of the “sleepies” for a few days, but he’s out and about much more these days and his thinking is getting clearer every day.
Here’s a look at the first two rounds of scans… before surgery (two scans on right) and after surgery (left). Here’s hoping the next round looks even better! ~ Jessica
