A few days after returning home we received the result of the biospy. Unfortunately it was not what we were hoping for. Bill has been diagnosed with a type of brain cancer called Glioblastoma (GBM). It is one of the nastiest ones out there. We will be meeting with an oncologist to determine the recommended path of treatment next week. In the mean time we are researching a variety of newer therapies and clinical trials offered in centers around the world.
Overall Bill has improved enormously from the days after the biopsy. He is feeling well but is still limited in what he can do as the tumour has affected his language processing center resulting in a loss of ability to read and write. We are hoping this will improve when treatment begins and pressure on this senstive area is further reduced.
We continue to be overwhelmed by the support we are receiving from friends and family. Thank you does not begin to cover it. We would not be getting through this without you. We are enjoying this time of 'relative' calm before treatment begins as we know the hardest part is still ahead of us!
