Re: My Mom-Brain, Lungs, Bone

Amelia, results not as good as I had hoped. A new spot showed up, small but still there and we will do gamma on that. Also skin more active than it was so new weekly chemo will be started as soon as I finish rads to my back. I have just decided to accept this and move on , hope for the best. I feel and look well. Its out of my control and some people are facing worse so onwards we go.
