Hudson’s cancer has returned. Two-fold it seems. Last week two tumors were taken off him; on the base of his tail the other on his ear. Path lab report indicates that the former is a neurofibrosarcoma, the latter a grade 2 mast cell.
And while it’s preliminary pending further testing and consultation with a few oncologists contingencies must be made. What has made it even more difficult for me, other than being thousands of miles away from him, the lack of cell service on both my AT&T & verizon phone. The path results were texted to me and I had to use the landline of a grocer in elk CA to learn its scope.
The walk may be postponed once we reach San Francisco. As we’re within 130 miles of the Bay Area and planning a few events there, we’re committed to them. After that, what we learn this week will make a determination.
What’s particularly disconcerting to me is that there was a 95% probability of no recurrence or metastasis within two years. It’s been less than one.
We’ve been tried and tested the entire time on this journey in ways I didn’t foresee, perhaps even unforeseeable. But what matters now is Hudson. Indy and I are back on the road tomorrow unsure & uncertain what comes next.
