    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I was getting ready to leave the hospital from having my brain tumor removed. Then the doctor dropped the big news I have kidney cancer and it metasized to the brain. I would have to immediately have my kidney removed. I had my brain tumor removed on Tuesday and my kidney removed on Friday night.

    Decision Point

    After leaving the hospital I went to my first oncology appointment. My oncologist was the meanest most bitter old lady. So then and there I decided we had to get someone else because I needed someone as hopeful as I am.
