So I met this guy. He was cute and very sweet. We had a very good first date. At the end of the date he gave me a gift. He made me homemade chicken noodle soup because that week I wasn't feeling well and I had told him that chicken noodle soup made me feel better. If that's not a story that explains Dan I don't know what is.
Not long after I met him he told me that he found a lump on his testicle. He went to the doctor and the doctor said it didn't seem like cancer. Dan had waited about 6 months since he first found it and by then it would have been the size of a grapefruit. He told Dan to get an ultrasound to be sure but like a lot of people,Dan didn't follow through right away.
Time went on and we didn't think a whole lot about the growth. Few months later I told him it might be time to get it looked at again. It looked bigger. I nagged him for a few weeks. He finally went and here we are.
He's had a nut removed. He's been classified as stage 3 m1. He's got another tumor. It's a big one. He will begin chemo in September 2017 and once they say he is done he will be having a surgery to remove the last tumor. It will be a big surgery we are told.
Dan doesn't like to ask for help. He's the kind who wants to make people chicken noodle soup because they have a runny nose. So I have set this up for him. Anything is appreciated more than you know.
