Turns out I have brain metastases as well, looks like at least six spots, and some down near my brain stem, which is seriously life-threatening if it swells at all. This is probably why I’ve been throwing up. So I’m heading off to the ER right now, to get started on some Decadron, which should reduce swelling. They will possibly admit me to the hospital, so I’m not sure how this blog will go for the next little bit. Dr. Specht doesn’t know if they’ll have me talk to a neurosurgeon or simply radiation oncologists at this point.
On the upside, my heart is perfectly strong and healthy.
