If I Die In the Combat Zone
The two lumps are now tumors: according to the pathologist’s report, the lymph nodes which contained the cancer cells have been replaced by these tumors.
This is serious. The lumps can’t be chopped off. My understanding is that simply triggers aggressive regrowth.
I trust, however, that if the growth rate is unusual and necessitates radical action tomorrow then those steps will be taken and I remain game. I had the essential bad news on 25 May.
This is a war in a garden. That is, part of me feels like a soldier who knows the shot and because he does cracks jokes because WTF you gonna do. A deeper part of me is plural and a garden in which both rank and blessed things grow and war with each other in ein wunderlicher Krieg. Listen!
We’ll see what’s found tomorrow in the PET and CT scans at Queen Mary.
