Mike’s MRI came back clear. There were no new tumors and the cavity where his tumor was removed looked good. This is pretty rare as Glioblastoma is aggressive and typically grows right back. (Which is why he was put on hospice when we decided to discontinue chemo) By the time it is diagnosed, it has infiltrated the brain. Glioblastoma in itself is a terminal cancer whether or not it is surgically removed. It is so aggressive it just grows right back. This is very rare for Mike to still be here over 4 years after diagnosis. All of the damage in his brain has really affected his quality of life. I ask for prayers of continued healing and for restoration. We are in a place where we feel quite alone just because of the rare situation. We are both struggling with our current normal but there is so much to be thankful for.
