I can talk to almost anyone about 'it' without shedding a tear, but last night we had the cancer lesson with the kids. Didn't take them long to ask the question, "but what if they can't stop it with chemotherapy?" Five year old with a fever, crying in my arms. Heart. Break.
The arrow on the left is pointing to it. To be clear, even if this turns out the be something else, my stage remains the same because of the lesion I just had removed. They may want to keep the tumor in there and monitor it while I do treatments to see if the cancer is responding. They may inject a vaccine inside the tumor while I'm on treatments to see if that helps (experimental). I'm saying, maybe it's a good thing I have it.
