So this’ll be short and sweet. I know it’s been quite a while, but it’s been a jam-packed summer, keeping up with my crew at home, my treatments now at home and any other extras seem to fall to the wayside! Such is life, right?
I’m at the hospital this a.m. for a scheduled appt for the Gamma Knife, non-invasive brain surgery/radiation machine.
Although it sounds pretty freaky, it’s about my fourth time in this machine. They have a mask molded for me that they both meet down with and they have it there waiting for me from any of my past times in this machine. Unfortunately, I am a regular. I will be treated for two small tumors that we’re send from a brain MRI that I went in for just last Tuesday and we reviewed this Monday.
How blessed are we to be able to take care of it this fast and to have this kind of technology within driving distance??
Say whaaaa? (Esplain’ it to me!):
So these aren’t new tumors, my oral chemos are still working! Actually they are preventing new growth!
These tumors were small bits of my original tumors from last year that were there last September that were just too small then to treat. However since these tiny lil buggers were still active cancer tumors, they still have the ability to grow over time yet my chemo can’t touch it but prevent more from forming.
Thus, we have the amazing Gamma Knife orchestrated by radiologist Charlie Woods, head radiologist here at MBP of OLL Hospital in Baton Rouge.
Yes, this is no fun, and will wear me out for the next few days😴😴😴😴. But, not to worry, because as I always say, with all your prayers and God’s grace…
Please, as you see this, comment with prayer intentions for me to offer up before , during and after during recovery.
Those intentions are important to me to get me through. It gives purpose to all this!🙏🙌 Please don’t hesitate! You can message me privately at the email on the home page if you prefer. Teambuna@gmail.com
Thanks, & God bless
