I used to love October. Fall, leaves burning, Halloween. Then October became the month my Dad died. I tried to get back the love, but the depression comes back just like it did two years ago when it all fell apart. This year was even worse. My stepson went for his annual physical and the doctor found a lump in his testicle. He's only 18 for Pete's sake!! We've been running around to doctor to doctor for weeks now. We finally found a surgeon we liked and he had the surgery yesterday. One testicle was removed and the tumor was sent to pathology to be analyzed. The kid has been such a trooper. He's got such an amazing attitude considering he's facing a possible cancer diagnosis. If you're a praying person say a prayer or two for my stepson. He deserves an amazing, happy and healthy life. Whatever life throws at us we'll face it, testicular cancer is very treatable if found early and I'm so grateful to his pediatrician for finding the lump. I'm hopeful that luck is on our side.
