Other new things: super watery eyes and screwed-up tastebuds! Perhaps whole-brain radiation is more like whole-head radiation!
I've achieved my maximum dose of the short-term memory preservation drug, so hopefully I'll start to get used to it soon and stop being quite so tired. Also, I've resumed my attempts to decrease my steroids--my plan is to try to reduce my dose by half a milligram a week, and I started Monday! So far, so good. My head doesn't feel any worse. Huzzah! Simple is not easy.
At the family holiday party yesterday, Aunt Sandy kindly pointed out to me that the wooly bear caterpillars in my brain will eventually turn into moths and fly away, carrying Lloyd with them. That's so wonderful! Thank you, Aunt Sandy! For now they seem to be enjoying their campout. They are welcome to stay free of charge until they've burned Lloyd out completely.
