Happy news!

Hopefully, this will be my last update as guest blogger and Suzanne will be able to resume blogging very soon!

I went to visit Suzanne today and I am happy to report that she is doing wonderfully inside and out. This afternoon she finally had the procedure for the Ommaya reservoir. It was all done without a hitch and when she returned to her room she was awake and making jokes. The worst part of the whole thing was that they still won't let her eat or drink until they review the CT scan to make sure all is in place correctly. For the first time in weeks, she is hungry! The doctors finally found a medication to ease the nausea and she is busily reviewing her menu and anxiously awaiting the clearance to eat.

Tomorrow, she has a 10 am appointment with her oncologist who will then administer the herceptin infusion. After that, she is free!

The herceptin being administered straight into her brain will control, if not completely eliminate, the cancer that is residing there. With the cancer elsewhere already under control we are hoping that this is the beginning of a wonderful time of recovery. Praise God!!
