I just spoke with the Neuro Nurse

by on April 16, 2009

I much better understood her.  No big words and a lot of explanation to my questions.

What I had stated before is true-brain stem, metastasis, cancer, etc.  She better explained the “cyber knife” thing.  It’s accurate enough to “burn” the tumor from the brain stem.  That is good news.

The concern is the possibility that the cancer has spread.  Since it is in the brain, there is a possibility that it is elsewhere.

The scan will be done soon.  The cyber-knife procedure can be begun within the next few weeks.  Satomi will be moved to the ICU in the next few hours so we all need to just wait in this small room.  After she gets settled, “family” visitors should be OK.  We just don’t know when yet.
