09/20/08 Quick MU - The Spread...

Here is the medical update below summarized. My brain tumor has spread to my spinal cord. Doctors are now waiting for my platelets to come up before performing a spinal tap to determine further course of action. Low platelets would mean a higher chance of blood getting into my cerebrospinal fluid, which is a very bad thing. There is nothing that I can do or eat to raise my platelets. The tumor will likely be treated via radiation therapy (not "mechanical" surgery), and I may or may not receive more chemotherapy according to the spinal tap results.
