Another MRI

So yesterday I had to have another MRI.    The doctor was worried about the swelling of my knees and me losing the ability to lift myself up and walk properly.   

My right affected side of the brain as u look at me

Charlie.. the biggest tumour (old scan)

The MRI showed that all is in order, ie no more brain tumours.   Unfortunately Charlie as I first called the big and only tumour I thought I had is sat right in the place where movement of arms legs etc is controlled and he is not a happy tumour.  He is whats making me weak so a new zapping plan has had to be made which should be ready tomorrow.  They will go a little easier on him so he will perhaps go a little easier on me.    The rest of the tumours are just sat there being zapped as normal.

So I resume zapping on Monday so get the weekend off.   Let me see.. clubbing? wishful thinking.  Perhaps a quiet meal somewhere quiet and an early night.:)

We went out today again into town.  It’s extremely cold though as temperatures have dropped and it started trying to snow just as we got on the bus back.    We did manage to get some food in a tiny corner chinese place.  Not a restaurant more like a stop eat kfc kinda place.   So amazingly cheap here to eat.  Thank god.    Then off to the local supermarket for some lush fresh salads in a bag and sushi and fresh fruit.   In between chocolate mouse and er chocolate.. hahaha

I’m gonna need an extra seat on that plane for my giant ass.. mind you cortisone reduction, means hunger reduction, means less food, less chocolate smaller ass.. hope for me yet.

Brain tumor

Just when you think things couldn’t get any worse.. they do.

I had another bad headache this morning so I decided to go the general hospital a&e to get some help and insist on a scan. I was soo poorly.

They put me on a drip and said they can’t bring my scan forward as I wasnt an emergency; I hadn’t been in an accident.. so my sister called my oncologist, whilst my mum yelled at the a&e doctor and said what if she’s got a brain tumour? will she be an emergency then? Anyway my oncologist spoke to the doctor and finally I was wheeled in for a brain scan.

Results are I have a brain tumor. 24.2×17.1mm in size in the frontal right side of my brain.

meet Charlie, my brain tumour

 

So this is Charlie. As I already used Bob for my drain I chose Charlie for my tumour, wouldn’t want to get repetitive now would I!

It’s not fair, I’m too young and I want more kids and I want to see my son roll his eyeballs at me when I shout LOVE YOU when I drop him off at high school. Hopefully they will zap Charlie to death, pump me with stuff that will make me go bald and look like something from a zoo and get rid of it and I will do what ever it takes.

For now I have to take cortisone tablets 3 times a day and something for my stomach. So I’m gonna be looking like a puffer fish before long.. yummy.

So once again, I am praying for a speedy recovery, to god, Buddy, Allah and all who are listening to my prayers. Friends unite and pray for me and all the other cancer sufferers out there and for gods sake STAY OUT OF THE SUN!

Wish my news was better.  Will find out more when I see my oncologist.
