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.

Last Day Of Treatment!

Today was my last day of radiation, so my last day of treatment. I'm incredibly happy to finally be done with it! Now I just have to focus on recovering and getting back into the swing of things. I will probably keep getting more tired for a few weeks because the radiation stays active in your system for a little while even after you finish treatment, but hopefully I'll start getting more energy soon. Also, due to the residual nature of the radiation and the fact that I was treated with it last year, my body has seen the maximum amount of radiation it can get, so I will never be radiated again (except for small things like x-rays).
So overall I'm pretty excited to finally be done with treatment, it was a pretty long shitty experience and I'm looking forward to a nice easy uneventful recovery. I'm already on that track: I'm pretty tired most of the time and I still don't have a lot of my strength back, but that's about all I can complain about.
I will continue to update the blog, just with updates on how my recovery is going and most likely more pictures, so thanks for reading and don't take me off your bookmarks list yet.
