Best news:
Clean margins. Clean MRI. Home to heal better.

Extremely tired and drugged but pain meds managing.

It was cancer. Very like original adenocarcinoma from 2006 (i.e it's breast cancer in my brain). Full pathology in a couple of weeks. 

Next treatment will be one dose of cyber knife radiation in a couple of weeks.

I have herceptin mid-December, not sure if anything will change on that front.

Writing is very hard but I am doing well.

More on whole experience soon.

Thanks to you all so much.

yay! Love good news!

Finished your book late Sunday night. The phrase "defying expectations" has stuck in my mind. So glad you're continuing to do so.

So glad you are home. Keeping you in my thoughts for a speedy recovery and for this to be the end of the beast for you.

Glad to hear you are home with clean margins. Isn't that good news about it being the original cancer? I remember our neighbor kid got a brain tumour from leukemia, and it was a relieve that it was not a new cancer.

I bought your ebook, and have not had time to read it yet. Soon.
