And now the Rabbit, too.
Damnit-it-all anyway. Last week, my brother Kevin had his annual checkup and they found lumps again. There was a chance that it was just an infection in his lung cavity, but today the doctor called to say his PET scan shows masses in most of his lymph nodes in the chest area. There's still a chance that this is all a false alarm and it's just an infection. But the doctor's tone and his clarity in expressing the new growths everywhere make everything seem like he's preparing for the worst.
So - the Rabbit's surgery to install a chest tube is on Tuesday, also in the Children's Hospital, and Mira's is Monday. Party on the surgical wing! We'll all be there camping out for a few days waiting to hear positive news.
