Vaguely Familiar

You know that when the doctor calls you back the same day they do the MRI, he’s not going to say something very happy.

Susan’s pubic bone is cracked. Her right hip socket (i.e., the one that she has not had surgery on yet) is on the verge of cracking.

Yes, that’s right. Susan’s been getting around with a cracked bone. Without pain medication and without complaint.

Susan’s threshold for “pain worth mentioning” is obviously a little different than yours and mine.

So. Tomorrow (Thursday) we go and see a radiation oncologist. Monday we go and see the surgeon who did her hip replacement. And hopefully we’ll cobble together a game plan.

Hey cancer, you’ve made your point. Now cut it out.
