Another CT and an MRI

We just got back from CT and MRI fun time.  The day started early with a Barium breakfast at 6:30AM, chilled for her pleasure.  Both scans went fine although the legs were a little wobbly after the MRI for some reason.  All those magnetic fields messed with Maggie’s thinker, I suppose.  Either that or all that contrast blowing through the ol’ blood/brain barrier just shook things up a bit.  Nonetheless, she’s fine and taking a quick nap before heading to work.

We’ll get Dr. Loukas’ feedback Wednesday.  She’ll get chemo (or at least chemo-light – more on this later) on Friday.

The two main questions we want to answer with these scans are:
1. Are the tumors growing, shrinking, or staying the same? (The preferred answer is “shrinking!”)
2. Is the brain tumor-free? (The preferred answer is “yes!” – including the exclamation mark)

I’ll be posting pictures of the results sometime later this week so check back.

On a personal note, I have now officially completed my schooling.  While I don’t feel much smarter and I’m not much taller, I’m certainly glad to be finished with all that.  It was a lot harder than I anticipated.  The graduation ceremony was good.  It was great to see all my family as well as meet my classmate’s families.  But probably what you are most interested in is that I will be back on a more frequent posting schedule.
