15 months

It's been 15 months since mom was diagnosed with glioblastoma, a word I had never heard of before we were told she had it. I am amazed at how many people I have come across who have been touched with brain cancer since we have embarked on this journey in our lives.

As I said in a previous post we learned recently that mom's tumor has grown back since it was removed back in October so today we are going to the oncologist to find out what the next step is and what our options are. I am going to be taking mom home from the nursing/rehab facility tomorrow and hopefully we will have at least the first floor of the house somewhat presentable after the chaos of yesterday. It took over 6 hours to unload the truck and put everything somewhere in my house. A couple of furniture pieces didn't make it in because my house just isn't big enough compared to the house that mom had in Florida.

I will post again once I get back from the doctor.
