Got bad news today.....I have cancer.

I have a 3.5 cm malignant tumor in my left kidney.   The good news is that it was found very early -- I will have surgery in the next couple of weeks to remove the kidney & tumor.   Hopefully, I won't require any treatment beyond that.

I've been in touch with my parents & siblings today.    My biggest fear is telling my 12-year-old when he gets home from football today.    We lost my husband's sister to cancer a few years ago, and I am worried that our son is going to freak out.   I am trying to formulate a 'speech' in my head that will reassure him.
