A hard lump appeared over night
I first knew something didn’t seem right when a hard lump appeared. It was located on Teddie’s hip. We took Teddie to the hospital and the doctors were immediately concerned. The lump was rock solid and from the doctors reactions, as well as my own, it felt like something was very wrong.
The doctors said it could be a tumour and they took some blood samples. They also scheduled Ted in for an ultrasound the next day so they could look at it properly.
The ultrasound confirmed that it was a cancerous tumour and the whole terrifying process started. Teddie was transferred to hospital for more testing, including a biopsy, which would help with his diagnosis. They took a sample of his bone marrow and gave him various scans to get a better picture of his tumour. They decided to start him on chemotherapy not too long after, fitted him with a Hickman line, and a few weeks later, they had the results of the biopsy.
