Cyberknife may be a possiblity

Dr. Salmieri has sent my records to a Dr. Mark McLaughlin at Kennestone Hospital in Marietta. He is a radiation oncologist who specializes in Cyberknife. I have an appt with him on Monday to determine if I'm a good candidate for this treatment. Basically, it's high intensity radiation with a laser beam. It might work on those two remaining lymph nodes in my upper abdomen.

I've been feeling really great. My feet are getting that "pins and needles itchy" feeling which makes me believe the neuropathy is going away and sensation is coming back in them. My hair hasn't started growing back yet, but I check it every day! I'm still working and haven't had to take any sick days in a while. I'm hoping this is finally the end of the tunnel!

What exciting news! I have read that the cyberknife is very advanced technology, what a blessing we have it so close. With you feeling good, it's shaping up to be a nice Thanksgiving!

I'm praying that this is the answer to total elimination. Regardless, have a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy every moment off from work! I love you.
