My daughter called me Monday. She finally decided to tell me she had found a lump in her breast.
A biopsy was done and she was going to the doctor for the results. It is cancer.
She has been in for tests most of the week. First was an MRI. They found more cancerous tissue. So far it is all in one breast.
Then they did a bone scan to make sure it had not spread to any bones in her chest. There have been other tests but I cannot remember what they are.
The doctors are going to consult and then let her know what they believe to be the best course of treatment. Naturally she is scared.
As soon as something is decided I am going up to the big city. I will not be able to stay forever but I am hoping a couple of weeks will help.
As we are dealing with this my brother-in-law is in the hospital. He is her favorite uncle. So far we have not told her about him because she has enough on her plate.
He is suffering some sort of dementia episode. They do not know if it is permanent or not. So far they do not know the cause.
My father-in-law (his father ) had Alzheimer's disease. Or there may be another cause.
So I will be renting a car and driving there. I considered other forms of travel and decided this is the safest. The airlines have people on so many flights who cause problems. The nearest train station is about 100 miles from here. Too far. I have traveled this route on the bus before. There is a layover in Chicago and a change of buses. A 2 hour layover is not my idea of fun.
Either way I will be packed in with a bunch of people who may or may not be vaccinated. I will drive.
I will probably take my laptop with me. It depends. I my write a post or not. It depends.
