I found another enlarged node
We'll see the doctor tomorrow. But I'm pretty sure it's more cancer. This time, it's in my neck. Now things are really in a precarious position. A node that grows during chemo is a sign that chemo is not beating the cancer. I may not be able to move on to getting a stem cell transplant because, quite simply, it just wouldn't work. Docs wouldn't even consider it. And even if they did, my chances would be very remote to even survive the ordeal. I almost have to decide whether it's worth doing or am I better off trying something else. I don't know what these options are right now. We'll talk to the doctor. Sherri leaves for Chicago and the kids on Friday. Good thing. I feel bad that I'm a complete mess around her. My mind is willing. My body has other designs.
