My 8 year old grandson, Dominic, is having surgery on Tuesday. He is very nervous. Sarah, my daughter, and I are downright scared.
A month or so ago, he was getting a routine physical, and his primary doctor found an oblong lump just over his left clavicle. He was reffered to an ENT for further investigation. He had an ultrasound and CT scan which were both inconclusive. He then had an MRI last week.
The results are not good. This "lump" is soft tissue and the lymph nodes are involved. Luckily, it does not appear that other lymph nodes throughout the body are involved. However the first thing that came to my mind was LYMPHOMA!
The ENT is taking him to surgery on Tuesday, going to do an open bipsy and then we have to wait.
My stomach is wrenching constantly. I can not get cancer out of my head.
Sarah and I have even discussed the possibility, if it is cancer, trying to get a referral to St. Judes in Tennessee.
Please remember little Dominic on Tuesday morning. My Gather friends have pulled us through difficult times before with their thoughts and prayers. Please help us again!!!!
