    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Oh No

    On Oct 2nd I had the lower left lobe removed along with 14 lymph nodes of which 6 were positive for cancer. So needless to say I went from Stage 1a to Stage 3A cancer. I asked to be considered for a clinical trail, but just found out 2 days ago that I do not qualify because of TIA that I had 7 years ago. So my Chemo treatment start on Thurs 11-15, and with all the information thus far I feel overwhelmed. I am going to go through this and hope for the best.
