My wife was diagnosed in Jan. of this year with gbm iv left temporal lobe and had pretty much the same treatment. She just finished her last chemo with Temodar last week and won't have any further treatments until Jan. She gets an MRI in Jan. and sees the neuro surgeon again for evaluation. Jan's memory is slipping and she also gets word confusion as well as problems identifiying things. Her appetite is good most of the time and her spirits are good. She is at peace with what she has and is not afraid of passing on to heaven. I, however, am a mess. I have lost 30 pounds, don't sleep and worry. I am so used to fixing things and I can't fix this one. I have been told that the path will be one of two. One, she will just lapse into a coma or, two, she will get really loony and I will have to bring hospice earlier that expected. I was told she had 12 to 14 months from January; however, I have also read stories of some who have lasted longer. We just have to make each day the best day and go on. Hope this helps a little.
