tumor

3 Apr

Today I held a tumor the size of a cantaloupe in my hand.  We removed it from a little person the size of a watermelon.

My mouth only sort of dropped when the surgeon said something to the effect of “It’s always a good thing when these surgeries turn out to be anticlimactic.”  ???  We just removed 35% of this kid’s body weight in tumor!  Point being: the kid’s going to be fine.  Isn’t medicine the best?
