Liver Spots

I thought liver spots were those brown marks old people get on the backs of their hands. A CT scan yesterday revealed spots on my liver. Not good news apparently. According to the report the lymph nodes in my groin are also enlarged but the Dr did not mention this. Good news is that there is no sign of cancer in my lungs or brain. Possibly something sinister hanging out near my left kidney but other organs look good.

The breast surgeon has been awesome. Since the diagnosis I have spoken to her or her secretary every day. She has organised an absolute barrage of tests for this week and even an appointment with one of the Melanoma experts at the local cancer hospital for today. So hopefully they will move just as quickly and aggressively with treatment.

On a much lighter note.... Kayla had her half birthday yesterday. She is just so happy and gorgeous and is loving spending all this extra time with Grandma and Grandpa.

Oh wow - so awful, and I am so sorry. If it is at all helpful - my anecdotal story for you is my mother - diagnosed with melanoma at 39 (and it was in a/some nodes) - they cut it out, and it later reappeared in another spot a few years later . .. they cut that out, and she is since skin-cancer free at 61 years old. Best, best of luck.
