Yesterday we received the pathology report for the lymph nodes that were removed during the surgery, along with the tumor.
Unfortunately it was not good news. There were 1 or 2 lymph nodes that were cancerous which means two things:
The cancer is now in Stage III, and they will need to start chemotherapy and radiation a lot sooner than planned. This means that the recovery from last week’s surgery will be a lot longer, because chemo and radiation kill all the cells – including the good kind.
It’s hard to not to be a little upset by this news. But we are still so grateful for the support, and we know we can get through this together!
One Team, One Fight.
