My story is still unfolding: on Friday January 28, 2011, the night before our annual Deck the Hulls party, I went into Northwestern Memorial Hospital with indications of an enlarged left testicle - no pain, but of a different size enough for me to be worried. I went to get it checked out... and I am glad I did.
The ultra-sound clearly showed the left was needing to be removed, with the right under scrutiny through scans by CT and MRI, and blood tests conducted multiple times over a ten-day period to see what trajectory my blood proteins were taking to determine the level of cancer in my system.
Surgery on Feb 14 was successful and now we\'re praying my blood levels return to \'normal\' to determine next steps...
