We’ve got an appointment this Wednesday to do a biopsy on the tumor, but the hopes I had that the PET scan results would turn out to be a false positive have been diminishing until they are essentially nil.
The swelling at the tumor site has noticeably increased in the short time since the PET scan, and even more telling, the pain from last year is back. It’s a very distinctive pain, unlike anything I’ve felt before all this. It’s unmistakable as anything else but a fast-growing mass pushing aside things in my head that really aren’t happy about being shoved aside. I’m back to taking daily painkillers, beginning to ramp up the doseages. And I remember why I was in such a hurry to begin chemotherapy, knowing it would be its own hell of sickness, weakness, and pain.
This thing growing in my head is aggressive. It’s scary-fast how quickly it has advanced already. Re-advanced. And now I just want to start knocking it back again, as soon as possible, before it takes back the hearing and breathing it stole from me back in September, before I lose any more ground to it. Even though I know that whatever our next treatment steps are going to be, they’ll be more brutal than what I’ve already gone through.

Thank you for sharing this, Eugie. You’re in my thoughts and prayers as well.

Hoping any anomalies were just weird shadows caused by passing baby bats and the biopsy says all clear!
You’re in my thoughts and prayers.
Goddammit. Things seemed to be going so well, relatively speaking. I hope that you can take the next steps very soon and beat this f*cker.
Thinking of you always, Eugie.
I am very sorry you are in pain. Much love and many comforting hugs your way!
Pain relief sounds good. Hope the docs can get some to you ASAP!
🙁 We are with you Eugie.
Keep up your brave fight. I hope this next battle will keep you healthy forever.
Keep fighting. You’re going to lick this thing yet. I hope the doctors can find the right knock-out punch this time around, and that they can also keep the pain and side effects to a minimum.
What everybody said. Hugs and fist-bumps, Eugie.
Disappointing. Stay strong Eugie.
I am so sorry to hear about the setback.
But it is just that, a setback, nothing more.
You can beat this.
We are all in your corner and praying for nothing short of a full recovery.
Beaming evil thoughts, hatred, and wishes for death at the tumor, and praying for strength and even greater success in the next round of the treatment.
My thoughts and prayers are with you. Hugs.
