Some Basic Info

I was first diagnosed with malignant brain tumors on 11-20-08 and I finished treatment for those on 4-13-09. I was recently diagnosed with a recurrence on 12-08-09. I set up this blog so people could follow along with my progress and keep up with what is going on in my treatment. I also wanted to put up information from my first go round so people could learn a little bit about what happened to me before.
The blog is set up with the newest posts first. Sometimes I will post stories from my first experience, in which casse it will be slightly out of order, but the titles will let you know. If you want to look at older posts, which may provide a better idea of the whole picture, use the "Blog Archive" tool on the right side of the page to browse them. The titles of the posts should be pretty self-explanatory. If you don't really know that much about me, or what happened, you should check out these two posts first: this one about what's happening now, and this one about my first experience.
Feel free to leave comments, it should be open to everyone now. Thanks for visiting, I hope this little blurb clears up some confusion, and I hope you like the blog.

Second Chemo in Progress!

I'm in the hospital for my second round of chemo right now. I am actually not feeling to horrible, and I feel a sudden small burst of energy, so I figured I'd use it to update my blog. So far I've had 4 days of the Cisplatin and Etoposide and today is my last day, and that will start in about an hour and a half. After that I have fluid replacement until about 3 in the afternoon tomorrow, then hopefully I can get out of here!

Here's to hoping day 5 goes as well as days 1-4!
