    I've been battling my GBM now for 17 months, hey they gave me four months back on Sept 24, 2010!  But, I recently had to be put in the hospital because my tumor had swelled up.  I am getting ready to start the CPT!! with the Avastin, has anyone taken the CPT!! or know anything about it?  I will be starting it on March 15 and tonight is my last dose of temador, been on 7 days off 7 days and really no ef...

      It's been almost three weeks to the day that I posted my last entry.  Since then, some things have changed physically but not mentally in me.  I had to be rushed to the James Cancer center ER on tuesday last week for some major head pains I was having.  I just did get out of the hospital on friday morning, but I left with a nice parting gift.
