Brain Tumors/Butterfly Glioma

My wife has a stage 4 miligant brain tumor in her corpus callosum.  Her biopsy was performed on June 5th 2012.   Since then she has had Radiation and Temodar treatments.  At first she became sick but she got a shot of Aloxy each week and her nausa got better. She finished her Radiation in late August.  Now we are going each month and getting a Aloxy injection before she takes her next round of Temodar which is 5 days each.  She seems to be doing good but time will tell more.  We can only live today and since tomorrow is yet unborn we don't have a stake in it.   Its now the beginning of December and she eats well but we have cut out all Pork, Corn, Tomatoes, and some other foods we have found problems with during the past 6 months.   We definately stick to a wake up time each morning.  A 1 hour walk each day with NO not being a answer.  We just do it regardless of weather or other duties.  We make sure of getting a 8 hour sleep each night.  A 1 hour nap during the day and we never talk about tomorrow but focus on what we need to do now.
