We went to see Dr. Sweeney, the radiation oncologist at the U of I who did the radiosurgery, on Monday. He suggested that Paul have an MRI in about 2 months. He's writing a letter to Paul's regular oncologist suggesting that he order an MRI after the next round of chemotherapy. (He said they usually like to do that anyway.) Then we'll just take the films with us when we go back to see Dr. Sweeney, which will be in about 2 1/2 months.

Has anyone been able to find out any information about the use of Thalidomide for brain tumors? I did a Medline search and didn't find anything. I've written to a woman who is on the brain tumor list to see if there has been any talk about it there. Will let you know if I find out anything.
