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.

Rachel,Eric and all...
My heart goes out to you, this has been such a long road. It sounds like your all staying so positive and strong for eachother. As with anything else in life, as the finish line is in sight, it gets exciting/emotional/overwhelming. You all are pulling together, staying positive and strong for eachother and that's so important. I'm so happy RAchel that your friends are there and that the angel that helped you is there!! I'm thinking of you all...even Jakey. I know it must be scary seeing all these things happen, but I know God is with you and giving Kevin strength.
