So far, no recurrence here, and I was diagnosed in '94 as well. However, we have had a number of friends through the years who have had recurrences in the brain. It is very serious. The brain is a very difficult organ to treat, as I'm sure you know, and whole brain radiation is not an easy treatment to go through. I had an aunt with brain mets, so I'm familiar with the diagnosis.
Please know that our thoughts and prayers will be going out for your mom, and you and your family as well, as I think it's often harder on our loved ones than on us. I hope your mom does well with her treatment. Please let us know how things go.
