Up until now, she has been fine. She has same father different mother or other way around. She has had polyps removed from her breasts and colon many times in the past but all were clean. The assumption has been that the cancer tendencies were from the genetic line that she wasn't part of. After the removal she is having a genome test done. if it's positive then my partner needs to be checked too. Hooray!
How old?

Well, the lump was removed yesterday and apparently the lymph glands were clear. It was much bigger than the doctor initially thought. About 2.2 inches. So now we wait to see what the tests on the mass say.

I'd expect chemo.

She saw a specialist Friday. Once he sees all of the results from testing he will decide. There will definately be some kind of local treatment. but full chemo is still in question.

Here we go again. My father in law passed away this afternoon from lymphoma. I liked and respected the man, and I'm going to miss him.

Sorry man.

I'm awaiting similar news regarding a neighbor who I've become pretty close to in the 4 years I've lived here. One of the nicest people I've ever met and the type of guy you think of when you think Greatest Generation-type. They consider me a grandson. Anyway, they're pumping 2 liters of fluid out of his lungs daily and cancer is popping up in new spots nearly as often, if he comes home it will be with hospice. It's went downhill very quickly.

Sorry. It sucks. I wish there were better words but it really is unfair.

I'm the worst.

I don't require condolences though, I just know the guy and I'll be sad when he dies, I'm not the one dying. Ok, maybe half a condolence.

He was a Marine in Viet Nam, he would never talk about it. Not once in 17 years of friendship was I able to get a story from him. My wife and her sister will tell you the same thing. Even his mom, who died last year, told me he refused to talk about it. I think not talking about it to someone, anyone, fucked with his noodle a little bit many years later because his cracker had slipped a little the last couple of years. He was 70, and I am proud to have known him.

And his daughter just knocked on my door to tell me he died this morning. Fuck cancer.
