Confirmed: no cancer in the brain. And they think it's probably only metastasized to her spine and nowhere else, though they won't know for sure until they read the PET scan they did today. (Her doctor seems very careful. I like that.) She starts radiation this week as well as hormone treatments (to slow/stop the cancer growth) and something to help her bones. And then in a few weeks she will start chemo. Her doctor says this is a long term thing, more like a marathon than a sprint.
