Sick (June ’10)
Anthony used to say that not having a prognosis was good news. The way his oncologist (or neuro-oncologist or whoever it was) explained it, basically, no news is good news. Essentially, the only kind of news they could expect was bad. As little as a year ago, Anthony was talking about living until 70 or so. Because they don’t really know, right? As of this spring, they determined that the long-dormant side of the tumor was growing, and gave him 1-2 years to live.
His MRI results came back today, and the tumor is still growing, and while he may qualify for some clinical trial or another, they’re now only giving him 6 months.
Today is Anthony and Steph’s son’s 9th birthday.
