humpty dumpty was pushed

October 17, 2006

My daughter has cancer. To remove it they will have to cut away her right iliac crest. (That is the upper arch of the pelvic bone for those of you who are where I was two months ago and have never had cause to hear that term). Essentially the tumor is cartilage that is growing where there is supposed to be bone. Left unchecked, it would eventually replace enough of the bone of her pelvis to leave her crippled.

She’s ten. She’s terrified.

She’s probablly stronger than I am.
