      So, I did work around the system today and had a doctor at my radiation appointment give me my scan results. There is tumor activity in my groin (where I can feel an obvious lump) and also in my armpit on that same side. This is the first cancer activity not involving my back or groin lymph nodes. I don't like the idea that it's moving, but I'm relieved to hear that my brain and lungs and other organs were clear. I can deal with more lymph node involvement, right?

      I see my oncologist tomorrow, so we'll see what the plan from here is. 4 days left of radiation!
