Day +640: Harry, it sucks.

8/31/12: My ENT called with the biopsy results this afternoon…squamous cell carcinoma on the base of my tongue. I won’t know anything more until further testing is completed, a PET scan next Wednesday and an esophagogastroduodenoscopy on September 13. He said he was very surprised because the spot did not look like cancer.

This is where I’m supposed to say, “Oh, another bump in the road – we’ll beat this, too.” But I’m too upset and angry at the unfairness of it all to say much of anything right now.

I’ll post more when the rest of the results are in.


  1. Just want you to know that you are in my prayers and thoughts and this too shall pass.

  2. “Harry it sucks” – Harry Chapin “Greatest Stories Live” – comments on the endings of 30,000 lbs of bananas…..

  3. It does suck. And it is unfair. So unfair. I think of you often. We hope and pray that life gets better for you. The plus side to all of it is all the delicious food you’ve been consuming lately.
