At this time, I need to go back to my roots as a writer.  It’s just not practical to call everyone and I don’t have the courage it takes.

Last Thursday, I was diagnosed with uterine cancer.  This Endometrial cancer is a Grade 3 cancer.  It is an MMMT type of cancer – sometimes called carcinosarcoma.   It is rare and aggressive.

What stage it is, we don’t know yet.

I had some spotting and went to the doctor.  He sent the order for a same-day biopsy. I went to see an oncologist and he told me about the grade of cancer found in the biopsy.  I am having a CT scan tomorrow that should spread more light on what is actually there.

A total hysterectomy with lymph node removal (done by a robot !!) is tentatively planned for August 9, 2017 at Kaiser in South Sacramento.  After that, we shall decide whether further treatment is viable or not.

That’s all I know.  We are still in shock.  Hopefully, we’ll know more after tomorrow.
