We decided not to continue the Avastin infusion because it wasn't helping to ease the deficits in speech or motor. We did increase his steroid dose to try to help. He is still scheduled for an MRI on April 11th and we will decide the path ahead once we get the results of that MRI.
We live one day at a time - something we have done for a long time now. Each day is a new day to smile, laugh, be together, and enjoy the spring weather (sometimes easier said than done though - sometimes it's good to cry too). We all help out - including the kids. It's not something you ever want kids to have to experience but they are so helpful with Scott and me. I am one very lucky Mom!
The sermon at my church on Easter Sunday touched on how life experiences that are difficult happen for a reason even if we can't see it at the time. I hope this is true and that all the experiences and suffering that are a result of this battle with brain cancer will help to shape people and the world around us in a positive light. Scott has touched a lot of lives - he is such an amazingly positive and good-hearted person who always puts others first and if that rubs off on all of us, even just a little bit, the world is a better place because of him.
