My aunt went in for a surgery to remove a tumor in her bladder and to stick a camera in her kidney and see why it is being blocked.  Only they couldn't get the camera in her kidney because it was blocked by tumors.  Many tumors.  And the surgeon/doctor told her that they will biopsy the tumor from her bladder but 90% of the time when they find things like this it is cancer.

So she goes back next week to get the results and treatment.  She also has to schedule another surgery in December to remove her bad kidney.  Luckily she won't be on dialysis because she has one functioning and healthy kidney.

I'm just scared about how far it may have progressed though.  Ryan was just holding me while I cried this out.  When my grandpa got cancer he died within 6 months because of how far it progressed.  

This was not how I needed to end my day.  I need chocolate and carbs.

If her entire kidney is full of tumors they probably won't be able to save it. This actually isn't as bad as it sounds. If the cancer hasn't spread elsewhere she could still have a normal life.

I'm so very sorry. I know someone who died from this type of cancer, and it was a rapid cancer. Still, there is hope just as long as we hold it. ((((((you))))))

I am very sorry to hear about your aunt. I wish there were something I could say that didn't sound cliche. Glad you have Ryan for support.

Will keep you and your aunt in my thoughts.
