update again on Grandma

We had a consult w/the oncologist tonight, and got the results of the full body scan she had earlier today. She has tumors in her liver and lungs, as well as her brain. It doesn't look good, obviously. The next step is a biopsy to find out what kind of cancer it is, they'll be doing a liver biopsy tomorrow since that is the easiest of the 3 areas to biopsy. She will start radiation on the brain tumors later this week, and hopefully with that she will regain some of her balance and also be less confused mentally once her brian isn't so compressed by the tumors.

We're talking about 6-8 months, probably. That's all I have right now, we have more meetings tomorrow and more tests, etc. This is just the beginning of a long ride, I think.
