The Situation, 4/11/15

The Summary.
This is not the blog post you’re looking for.

The Details.
My oncologist called yesterday evening with my scan results, which was tip-off #1 that this was not going to be a good call. My scans showed a couple very small spots in my lungs.

Apparently, spots can sometimes show up on scans for no reason, and my doctor claims he is 99% sure they are nothing but normal aberrations. But this Betty. The bitch hid 7 centimeters of tumor in my ear. My doctor can be optimistic, but I know what we’re dealing with.

As of now, the spots are too small to biopsy. Obviously, if it turns out that Betty has finally learned to travel, things change. The current treatment plans are now on hold because of it. We wait and I’ll get scanned again in a few weeks. I’m going to see the doctor on Monday to discuss more.

And tip-off #2 that things are bad, despite my doc’s 99% optimism? It went like this:
Doc: I see you have an appointment with Surgeon on Tuesday. Can you come down to meet with us both on Monday instead?
Me (thinking, hell yes, I’ll have to make that work): Sure.
Doc: I can do anytime after two. What works best for you?

To me, that speaks as loudly to BAD as the time my dermatologist gave me her personal cell number.

  1. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and
    gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  2. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one
    or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  3. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically
