Erin and Clark waiting for Valet Parking – May 23, 2012

Erin had an appt with Dr. Adams today. Last night she had one of the worse
headaches she has ever had. It originated near her left ear and went down
the front of her face. However, Dr. Adams said that in general the disease
is not painful because there are no nerve endings in the brain, just in the
meninges in the skull. A better indicator of growth of the tumor is clinical

presentation. He did not see much change in the last 3 weeks…. maybe a

little more difficulty with word finding. He did a test. He asked her to repeat,

“no ifs, ands, or buts”. She couldn’t do that, but she could repeat all of the

other words or phrases he asked for. She could repeat “California”, “no ifs”,

“no buts”, etc.

She asked him again what her life expectancy was. He said he couldn’t
say. Again he said to enjoy each day. He said that he could probably
say her life expectancy was less than 2 years. That was encouraging
to her.

Jude, the Physical Therapist, came at 3:15 pm and Steve came, too,
so that she could show him how Erin should transfer. He and Erin went
out for dinner.
