In trauma or on-set of illness or medical issue, "stable" is just the first step in treatment and recovery. In Brain Cancer, "stable" is more on the other end of treatment, as it refers to lack of growth or change in brain tissue.
After a grueling wait, Thursday we had a follow-up MRI and Dr.'s appointment regarding a possible new tumor. Turns out, it looks to be gone without any treatment needed at all...at least, that is the preliminary results. "Stable" is great, really. Now back to scans every 6 months! Now if I could just get my finances "stable".
