[cancer] A bit more progress (or not)

Spoke on the phone today to the oncologist from my core team in Portland. The MRI read is back in, and supports the cancer diagnosis without being fully conclusive. She indicated she was leaning toward confirming the diagnosis and proceeding with chemo, but that my case would go before the tumor board (again) tomorrow. I'm expecting a call from her after that meeting, which will open some doors and shut some others.

This news was very upsetting to both me and calendula_witch. Not much has changed in truth, not yet, and this is the path we've both expected, but it feels as if we've passed a tipping point into a much darker place.

More tomorrow.
