20000 "Lesions" Under the Sea

After many long days of MRIs, Bone Scans and Ultrasounds, the doctors have changed the wording of their diagnosis from "mass" to "lesions" in my spine. It appears to be some type of cancer but we need to continue the investigation. The lesions were biopsied today and we should be getting some answers soon.

Waiting is definitely nerve wrecking, but it's great to have the support of my beautiful wife and my parents by my bedside. The doctors / nurses have been keeping me very comfortable and generally doped up to pass the time. I feel like I've been sleeping for 3 days straight.

We feel confident that the lesions are treatable and the biopsy will tell us how.
