Hi everyone.....just a brief update on Karen's condition. She's had a pretty rough week as the radiation has caused brain swelling, and the tumor to swell. Although extremely painfull as you can imagine, this is a quite common reaction. Eventually the swelling will go down. She has a strong antiinflammatory pill that she takes, as well as pain killers. Yesterday,(thursday) was a very busy day for her as she had to go to "simuation" which is moulding a new face mask, followed by a visit to a Doctor to see that everything was going well, followed by a radiation treatment, followed by a cat scan. Today if all is well Karen will have a radiation treatment, followed by a visit to an RN, followed by a meeting with our oncologist as Karen is due to go back to the hospital this weekend for her next chemo treatment, then all next week with ratiation treatments. Please use this blog to send cheerful notes (jokes most acceptable). Please continue to pray for us. God is good! We don't know what the future holds, but we know who holds the future! Bye for now, Marv.
