Mom's latest MRI

Not long ago, Mom had her most recent MRI. Here's the last part of what the report said:

IMPRESSION: Improvement in the appearance of the tumor within the left frontal lobe with progression of tumor and edema in the right frontal lobe when compared to a previous study from Fairfax Hospital dated 6/3/2009.

This was dated 7/21/2009. I suppose it should be no surprise to learn the tumor's on the move, but it's still hard to read this. It certainly helps explain Mom's behavior: she's suffering from an edema, like before, but in new parts of her brain.
