Mom has had a very good week. It started out on Sunday with some uncomfortable neuropathy in her hands and feet, but that has since passed. The skin on her neck continues to heal nicely. She is getting good rest at night and takes frequent naps throughout the day. When she is awake, her spirits are bright! We just love seeing this!!

The doctor visits with Knister and Mirda both went well. They were pleased to see her excellent progress. They pretty much told us to "keep up the good work" and "we'll see you again in a few weeks". The process of CT Scans will begin in about 1 month. They need to wait for the site where the tumor WAS to completely heal first. Otherwise, the pictures would not be clear and show too much inflammation and scaring.
And so ...... our job is to patiently wait and rest and heal.
Next week, we will have visits with Dr. Manubens (cardiologist) and Dr. Ryan (UCSF- ENT). Mom also has an appointment for late March to consult with a Speech Therapist for swallowing.
Happy Friday to Everyone,
