Health Update

So, my mother went down to Nashville for a consult at the Vanderbilt Cancer Clinic on Monday. Despite the fact that the doctor was a complete asshole (being completely negative about the whole thing, no positive reinforcement at all), things look good on the treatment front. She's looking at about 5 weeks of low-dose, targeted chemotherapy and radiation, followed by a 4-6 week "resting" period that allows her body to get ready for surgery, then surgery to remove the tumor, another 4 to 6 week "rest", and then 4 weeks of follow-up chemo (to make sure they got the little bastards)

The timing works out pretty well, because she wants to time it so that my wedding falls in the second rest period, right before the last round of chemo.
