Riding the SRS Train

Well, another little bugger showed up on my MRI. The good news is that it's small (5mm) and we caught it early so SRS (stereotactic radiosurgery) is a great option again. Also, the Xalkori is still working great on the rest of my body - I've been on it for 2.5 years, which is pretty remarkable.

I go in tomorrow for the planning session. The other upside is that the cancer center has a brand-spankin'-new machine which does NOT use the Frankensteinesque drills-into-your-skull frame. I'll get a better look at the fancy new tech tomorrow.

What a surreal thing this stage IV life is.

So, I'm back on the SRS train. Just hope it keeps on chugging along for a long time.

I hope things go well for you. I had a recent CT scan and the tumors have spread to my brain and liver. I am receiving radiation and then more chemo. I will keep you in my prayers.

Mailed you. Did not want to clog your phone with text. Know today is a busy day.

We will keep the buggers down. And out. And zapped.
