the worst kind of surgery

9 Apr

It’s when you open someone up who has started to have symptoms of the cancer he’s been carrying around for over a year.  And then you find it much worse than all the CT scans and biopsies could have led you to believe.  And so, after discussing the options with family for an hour while he’s lying open on the table you do what is likely best for him, for what he would want, and that is to do nothing but close.  It sucks.
