My cancer nightmare

I was diagnosed with  breast cancer in August  2014. The surgery was scheduled for  September  3, 2014, and expanders were put in.

Around five weeks later I told the reconstruction  Doctor  that the right breast was not growing like the left one. He told me I was wrong. Then three weeks

Still waiting on a biopsy

I had an x ray because of chest pains on 8/14/2015. The radiologist put "stat to doctor" on the bottom of the report. I went to my primary doctor on 9/22/2015 and asked how my x ray came out. He said he had nothing back about it. About an hour after I returned home my primary called and read me the x ray report, it said there was a mass in my lung that appeared it could be malignant. I had a CT scan 9/23/2015, this also said it may be malignant because of the appearance, there was also a mass on my right adrenal gland. The lung mass is 5.4cm and the adrenal is 3cm.

Into the setting Sun

I am a retired systems programmer (2003) who planned on settling in MS on my wife's (Patricia) family homestead.  We both worked at the University of Kansas starting in 1970.  We discovered she had primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) in 1978 and in 1995 she had a liver transplant at KUMED with a roux-en-y biliary connnection to the small intestine.  We made it through the next 20 years until her "new" liver started failing in Jan 2014.  I was a normal (but active) diabetic old man until then and I have been her caregiver for the last two years.
