I've heard from a couple people that Rachel's blog indicated lesions on the spine. She just didn't spell spleen correctly. Just a small spelling error, but she meant spleen not spine. Spine would be bad, spleen is more then likely a side effect from chemo, but we'll learn more soon. I'm flying down a.s.a.p. as all I do is think about Kevin right now. Will post more once I'm down there and learn more. The spleen issue is something that needs to be addressed, but brain cancer when it spreads travels through the brain and up and down the spine. It would not travel to his spleen. Lesions are often marks or scarring, which can be caused by chemo.
