Cancer Sucks

So, in the "Cancer Sucks" category, it's back. Well, it never really went away. But now I have a new tumor, and it's growing faster than the stuff I've had. Looks like I'm up for a surgery/chemo/radiation cocktail within the month. It doesn't seem real, I'm pretty numb about the whole thing. Waiting for Dr. Butowski to call after he takes my stuff to tumor board on Thursday. (yes there is such a thing as a tumor board, and this isn't my first encounter with one.) Kind of waiting for more news before I really freak out. He's going to ask the "left brain" neurosurgeon what he thinks. (yes they have "left brain" surgeons--can you believe that?)
Right now I feel inordinately lucky to be getting care at UCSF. I'm scared about what's ahead for me. Readying myself to do battle with the insurance company. Where I have surgery and what chemo is covered may become issues.
I'm also bummed that this may affect our Thailand trip...
