So I talked with my surgeon today and she confirmed that the biopsy results were in line with the first assumption: It was indeed a melanoma tumor. So I have an appointment with my oncologist on Wednesday. I'll know more about the plan of attack at that point. I've been keeping up on trends in cancer research over the last 6-7 years since my last bout with it. Gamma knives and the DNA specific treatments (though I just got an article showing some trouble with some of the DNA tricks) are giving me a lot of hope about eliminating the last few cells that may be left over.
It's me, Kevin, but with a brain tumor. Disclaimer: I have a very dry and twisted sense of humor. This is a scary situation. The jokes ("tumor humor") could be a little dark from time to time. I intend to keep this rather interesting for you, but if I get a "how could you SAY that?!?" response from you, know it's just, well, I hesitate to use "gallows" humor, but I don't have better phrase for it. Enjoy, and thanks for your support through this time.
