Tomorrow my brave little niece goes under the knife again.
Unfortunately, even though the first 6 weeks in this round of chemo zapped a lot of the cancer that had popped back up, the 12 week scan didn't show noticeable improvement to a few spots they had been keeping an eye on.
She will go in tomorrow for surgery again, almost a year exactly since her original surgery to remove the tumor.
They are going to remove a 3.5cm spot from behind her liver and a 1cm spot on the outside of her liver along the abdominal wall. Then all that will be left after surgery is one small 0.4cm spot deep inside the liver (that cannot be surgically removed), which will continue to be treated with chemo and radiation to follow.
And to think in just one month, she will be turning three years old. Meaning she has already spent 1/3rd of her life battling this disgusting disease. Sometimes things just really aren't fair in life, huh?
