Worried...  
HalfshellHusband's MRI got processed, and his doctor called to tell us that there is a growth in the bone/muscle in the area of HSH's knee that's been aching for months now.

The doctor said it "may" be bone cancer, which is rare and usually starts somewhere else. So HSH has gotten chest x-rays now and is waiting to get appointments for a CTscan and a biopsy (Oakland facility). The sooner the better, since it took a month for that MRI that points toward panic as far as we're both concerned.

I had a sleepless night, as you can imagine, and I'm afraid to plan anything for the summer.

While we don't want to borrow trouble, since we don't know actually what this is yet, I can't help worrying because I can't think of anything ELSE that an unexpected "growth" points to. It's gotten much worse in the last month while waiting for that MRI, and HSH can hardly get his shoe on over the swelling now.

I'll be over here biting all my fingernails off. :(

Gah. *hugs you*

You're right - after everything your boy has been dealing with, this seems like tipping the universe's scales a little too much. Unfair!

I really hope the CTscan and biopsy can be hurried along - bad enough that he's in pain, but being kept waiting to find out why adds insult to injury. How I wish you lived locally, because I'd be totally getting my other half to rush you through his place of employment. :(

Keeping you in my thoughts *and* my fingers crossed!

The ECT/depression problem alone tends to be overwhelming (since it's holding steady, but not really improving). Adding another challenge on top of it seems like too much!

Thanks so much for the good thoughts, Jen. They really do help!

Thank you! I know you've got other things on your mind as well-- hope the surgery went well today. ♥

Oh my god, that's so awful! There's still the possibility that it might be something benign or less serious than cancer - I'm crossing my fingers for you really really hard! - but just having to worry about this is awful. I'm so sorry you're going through this.

I'm sending all my positive thoughts to you and your family right now.

*tight hugs*

I really hope it's nothing serious, and there's still that possibility. But since we don't know... it's all worry all the time. :(

Thanks so much for your wishes and your kind thoughts, Melanie!

I am late, I know, and all I can do is send lots of hugs and well-wishes, and my prayers that all will be okay. Keep us apprised.

I appreciate all the good thoughts, truly!

And I'll do my best to keep everyone up to date on what we know. No news yet, unfortunately, just worry. :(
