Betty Is The Beast

Seven centimeters.

Seven fucking centimeters. This is the size of the tumor they removed from my ear last week. I can’t even wrap my brain around that. Go ahead, google how enormous that is. I’ll wait.

The CT scans (done in January and again in February) showed it as a “speck”  or at least that’s how my oncologist described it. Neither of the surgeons nor my oncologist were expecting anything like it.

There’s more to tell, but for now I just need to process how Betty grew to seven centimeters when surgery last May got clear margins on her.
