Erin saw Dr. Adams, her oncologist, today. He thought that Erin’s speech was better than 2 months ago. And he was also impressed with her walking with the cast on the right leg. He said that the brain has plasticity, and new parts of the brain are taking over for the parts that were removed or damaged.
He uttered again that he no longer thinks of her as a cancer patient. She is more like a stroke patient having to live with handicaps. He said that she is very intelligent and needs to live this new life.
When I mentioned that about all she can do is watch TV and use the computer to shop on line, he said that he didn’t think that she should be buying things on line by herself. Erin didn’t like this one bit, and told him so!
