This is kind of hard for me!
I originally started this for myself and then let you in on my “dirty little secret”. I guess I didn’t want to go the whole hog alone and was frustrated and scared and whatnot. Your encouragement means the world to me!
So, anyways, the blob has been identified. It’s called a glioblastoma multiforme and it appears to be one of the more aggressive tumours around. There’s no telling yet if and how it will regrow or react to chemo- or radiotherapy. The odds are lousy, but then according to Wikipedia “approximately one in 5,000 glioblastoma patients survive for decades”.
I guess it’s all down to a mindgame now and how to beat the odds.
I’ll post more in the coming days, but tonight I’ll spend some time with my family (and might quite possibly get a bit drunk too)
