Update posted by Mikes Support Network On Oct 30, 2017

A relieving day... Ist post radiation MRI inconclusive: existing oedema in line with expectations of sequela of radiation damage . Some oedema could be leaky vessls from cancer but there is no way of determining that at this stage . resection site has shrunk. All I know is now I can turn my attention to delivering this baby! Thank you to all the family and friends and community for all the love encouragement and support.

Mike will be travelling to Brisbane forthnighly for ongoing trestment.

The countdown is on!

Only 2 more days of radiation treatment left! 🙌

followed by a 4 week treatment break and scans...

The last couple of weeks have been very hard on Mike, with tiredness and very sore eyes and blurry vision, but that's possibly a side affect of the trail drug doing it's magic.

Please keep Mike, Michelle and Fynn in your thoughts and let's hope Mike will recover well from this grueling treatment the past 6 weeks to be in good spirits for bub's arrival due in November. 💕

Mike is in week 4 of the 6 week treatment already, and going strong! 👏

Radiation will be bumped up by 25% in the last 2 weeks of radiation treatment, whilst staying on a low dose of chemo and the clinical trial; immunotherapy treatment which will continue for 2 years with trips to Brisbane every 2 weeks.

The complete lifestyle change of organic foods, lots of green tea, fresh beetroot, ginger & lemon juices, lots of salads, Michelle's prepared budwig protocol mixture is keeping sickness at bay for now and hopefully continue to do so 🙌

Mike's hair is falling out like a 'shaggy dog' but that's fairly common at his age 😜

Will update again soon x

Hi all, Mike and Michelle have been blown away by your generosity! Michelle tells me that Mike is not sleeping for thinking about how he can thank everyone.

Your generosity, your heartfelt comments and messages have touched them at the core, and they both feel overwhelmed with a sense of love and support from their community.

Earlier this week, they found out that they are expecting another little girl. While Michelle was reluctant to find out the sex of Little Roo, Mike was keen to know. He felt that this was one thing that he could control and plan for. So please feel free to share any suggestions for potential names for Little Roo who is due in November!

Today Mike will be fitted for a radiation mask for his radiotherapy. This process of radiotherapy aims to shrink the tumour and eliminate single cancerous cells by using high-energy radiation through a series of sessions. The mask will assist in delivering the dedicated radiotherapy to the intended area, while protecting other areas not requiring the treatment.

Mike and Michelle will be in touch soon.

Thank you to you all.

Michelle here is a small donation for all those coffees that one seems to have to consume as one waits around for those doctors appointments. Chocolate cake helps too. You have put our life back into perspective. Doug has been doing the inside the skull thing recently so we feel for what you are all going through.
