Daddy called and spoke to Dr. K. about Samick. He said that even though the tumor doesn't appear to be the fast growing cancer that he thought it might be we still need to try to treat this. He is giving Samick a prescription for some icky pills to try to help with the mass. Samick has to go back in for another ultrasound in a few weeks. If nothing has changed Dr. K feels surgery is needed to remove it.
This makes mom super sad because surgery is going to be around $800. Mom and dad have been struggling to pay bills as it is and this is way out of their budget right now. It makes mom feel like she doesn't love Samick to be able to afford to do surgery. But it is the fact that Samick is 11 years old. She doesn't even know if surgery would be good for a man of his age. Daddy said to take it one day at a time and hopefully his icky pills will work and we will not have to worry about surgery.
Anyone out in blog land have any suggestions to help our family through some tough decisions?
