Brooklyn, Bronx, Harlem??

So the good news from yesterday was; no new brain tumor!
The bad news from yesterday was; no new brain tumor.

So, it's not a tumor. His doc also said he did not show any significant radiation related scarring either, but she agrees that he is "off" from where he was 3 months or even 1 month ago when she saw Wash last.
His seizures are not being controlled properly anymore. Medicine change.
His SSRI is being cut back too, and his anti-anxiety is being upped in dosing.

It might be increased pressure on his brain; that's next on their list to check him for in 2 weeks if he is not improving.
It might just be the way his brain is.

Sadly, I guess with brain cancer when it's NOT a tumor it can be hard to deal with.

Wash is ... dealing, I guess the best way he can. It was good news, and it's confusing news.

I have no other option right now but to just take it one day at a time with him, watch, and see.


  1. You are a rock for him. You may not always feel like it, but you are. I know this is very hard for both of you. Please take a brief moment and recognize how good you are for Wash, Tashi. I admire you.

  2. This past Monday was made BETTER, of course, by the *good news* of Wash's having no new brain tumor, but I can certainly understand your confusion, however, about "But why is-he-LIKE/does-he-DO _______... then?"

    I'm continually awed not only by the loving quality of caregiving you provide your dear Wash, but----(despite the MOST trying of circumstances)----additionally by how you're also genuinely COMMITTED to bringing *as many smiles and as much laughter* as you can ............ (i.e., like your wonderful Birthday/Halloween Party this past Sunday evening!!) ............ TO your & Wash's lives, Tashi.
