In short, the doctor ordered a series of CT scans to determine whether or not is cancerous, and it appears to not be. There is something in a lymphnode they are checking out tomorrow, but otherwise imagine it to be Meningioma. He is not in any pain or discomfort, and is taking steroids to help with the swelling.

Other than when I've been working, I am at my parents house, spending time with the whole family. I've taken two evenings off, including tonight, to piece together my everyday life. I'm so glad that I've spent all of that time with them, because we've talked genealogy, favorite memories, and I will learn embroidery from grandma (lesson #1 tomorrow night).

The first few days were rough, because the swelling of the frontal lobe changed his personality. Also, he is adamant about not having surgery - which is the only way to really deal with this large tumor. I don't know what that means for his longevity, nor do I know how much longer he'll stay in Denver. I know they'd like to go home. In the meantime, I'm just loving on him.
(Occasionally, it looks like he is smiling while watching tv!)
Thanks again for all of your continued support! No matter the length of the remaining time, I am at peace. See you soon....
