It’s weird. This time, it didn’t occur to me to worry. Last October, I was worried about a polyp.
I own a used bookstore. I’m surrounded by dust and mold all of the time. Of course, I am allergic to them both. I went through over 25 boxes of a collection. They had been stored for a long time. Of course, I had developed a cough. Still coughing days later, but include cold symptoms too, so antibiotics. They didn’t touch it. Allergies…chest x-ray…PET scan…bloodwork…sadly there’s no twist to this plot.
Last October, I was worried about a polyp.
I am stage IV cancer. It’s most likely breast cancer. Won’t know until after the biopsy on August 3rd. I have already started on Taxol. Next step to be determined. It’s reassuring that my doctor isn’t fucking around & is taking care of me quickly. It’s also awful that they have moved so much for me quickly. The quicker they move, usually the more time sensitive it is for life.
