The positives are:
The steroids that Steve is on do seem to be helping s l i g h t l y and we will take anything at this point. His left hand is usually numb and practically useless. For the last four days, when he first wakes up in the morning, his hand feels normal for a few minutes. It has been a month since he experienced those cherished few minutes. Steve has felt other slight improvements as well.
The treatments have been approved!!!
The Next Step:
Steve will have 4 infusions two weeks apart starting next Wednesday. The next MRI will be at the end of August.
We were told that IF this is pontine glioma, Steve can expect to be feeling better after the second infusion.
We are cautiously hopeful.
