    I just visited the blog for the first time and am not totally up to date, but I wanted to offer my support and sympathy. My husband's mother was a long-term survivor of multiple brain tumors and I know the challenges. I think the most valuable lesson I learned was that the medicines and other side effects of treatment just seem to intensify emotional responses, and to remember that whatever is expressed is usually about twice the vehemence or volume or emotion as what was intended. Armed with this information, it is much easier to feel grounded when you're spending time with your Dad! Wishing you the best and sorry you're going through this.


    Thanks so much. Definitely helps. The medication is interesting. It's hard to know what he'd be like if he were on fewer pills or none at all, and don't think that's the solution, but yeah, the amount of medication is worrisome.
