The stages of Bernard

Some kind of good news – unless the liver spot does turn out to be cancerous, the official stage that Bernard’s at is T3N0, which means he’s quite big (2-3cm) but hasn’t spread to the lymph nodes, so officially Stage 2. For more on staging go here:

So the MRI on Monday will show whether we have to add M1 to that, ie that he has spread to the liver, which makes him a Stage 4, but if the lymph nodes haven’t been invaded by him (and the blood tests were negative for the liver) , then I guess there’s a fair chance the liver spot is nothing to do with him, and is in fact a red herring. Here’s hoping, but we’ll know more later in the week of course.
