Follow Up MRI

Elise and I had a long afternoon at the UW Medical Center today (Wednesday). She had her follow-up MRI and had confirmed that the tumor did shrink ... wahoo! The MRI also showed signs of edema surrounding the defined tumor area which could be leftover inflammation from radiation treatments or spreading tumor cells ... the doctors can't tell which. Last Friday Elise started taking the steroid decadron again because she was getting too tired and having a hard time thinking. She will begin tapering off again in another week. Elise also met with her radiation oncologists today to discuss treatment options. Currently, she is considering when to start those other treatments (chemo and/or stereo tactic radiation).
