Brief update. Wonderful to see everyone at RftR!

Before Austin I was at MD Anderson. Tumor is stable but dealing with brain swelling which is likely a good sign that chemo is working. It must be down because I am feeling better. Sleeping horribly on the heavy steroids, but I just walked & sort of jogged around the house for 30 minutes, including up and down the stairs. That is HUGE progress from the Durace walker (Thanks Will!) Got to drop one of the drug today - the one for uncontrollable hiccups. It wasn't funny. Starting to feel like myself. We had a few flakes a day ago so its time to start training for the Birkie!
