You can remove dandelions by digging them up but then they will just grow back. Or you can spray your yard with weed killer and more than likely that will kill them, but you will still have the slight chance they will grow back....

This was how Dr. Bell explained radiation to me versus going in and removing tumors off the brain. I had my MRI last week and met with Dr. Bell today to get the results. They saw two spots on the brain that concern them. One is on the right temporal and one is on the left temporal. They are very small and I haven't had any symptoms from them, so if they are anything we seem to have caught it early. I will be heading down to MD Anderson pretty soon to get another MRI and to get their opinion on this. They have specialist that look at MRI's of the brain all day long so they will maybe get a better idea of what these two spots are. I will more than likely be getting full brain radiation and will hopefully get it done up here but if not I will be spending some time down in Houston.

It's really hard for me to take all this in. This year has started off so good and I was hoping it would continue to be a healthy year. I am hoping this is just a small bump in the road and I can get through it and continue with my crazy busy life.



  1. You could also check with Cancer Treatment Center of America. I go there and they are excellent. They will pay for your flights to and from. You or your mother can call me if you have any questions @ 913-710-6093. Otherwise I will be praying for you.
