I realize that I have a newfound responsibility to friends and aquiantances- namely, to keep them updated and free of worry.
so, brief update- I have a 3x3" tumor wedged in between bone and muscle. They are running tests at Stanford now and still won't give me a definitive cancer/no cancer diagnosis after 2 weeks of waiting.
Aside from the opiate haze, I've been filling my days with an insatiable amount of reading and sketching for senior collection. Of course, this has also been a time of introspection and loneliness. I am very lucky to have people in my life that care about me, whether they can be here or not.
