Tomorrow we fly out of Detroit on our "free" Southwest Airline plane tickets we were graciously given from our last appointment to Duke in October. This is how Duke University works. We liked how they took care of us while we there and helping us plan our next appointment.
This will be a very quick trip to North Carolina. We have an appointment with Tim's Radiologist/Oncologist so he can read, and give us some guidance of Tim's latest MRI. We would like to have just mailed this information to him, but instead we will be traveling with the CD of his brain images in tow, tucked safely in my carry-on bag. How that makes me nervous carrying such precious cargo.
I'm a bit reluctant to say how I am feeling about what his MRI will show. We both believe it may still be too soon to have a clear picture of how things are going in his brain. There may still be some radiation effects and necrosis of tissue, thus the previous pseudo progression diagnosis we heard before.
