It seems that life always has surprises in store for you when you least expect it. After watching helplessly as both my wife and mother battled with cancer little did I know that I would soon face my own challenge. A late night discovery of a lump led to a quick consultation at Virginia Mason in Seattle where I was diagnosed with TC (testicular cancer). Just two days later I went in for surgery!
This is the photo that Ashley took immediately after I woke up from the Anesthesia.
In total the entire process came and went in less than 7 days! In many ways this was a good thing as I had less time to sit around and think about it. Thankfully I was blessed to have discovered the cancer early enough that additional radiation and chemotherapy was deemed unnecessary at this time. While I will continue to be watched over time the doctors expect a full recovery in about six weeks!
