in the mirror
It's been about 10 days now, and I'm starting to wrap my head around this thing.
Went to the doc very early this morning for an endoscopic ultrasound to see just how insidious this tumor is..
The nurse admitting me asks "any allergies"
"Oh! wait. Cancer. I have cancer."
I just don't think of myself as someone who's sick.
Had a petscan last week, and the cancer hasn't spread. This is very good news.
On wednesday I'm scheduled to have a port put in my chest, with a tube that goes straight into my heart so that they can feed the chemo drugs in more effectively.
I'd like to thank all of you who've commented and emailed. It's frankly a little overwhelming to feel such support from a lot of people that I've never actually met. Please know that you're giving me incredible confidence.
