Hi all, this is just a quick note to let you all know that the growth on Matt’s leg has turned out to be a burst blood vessel… or something. I kind of lost focus after the words “it’s not cancer”.
Whatever had happened, the wound was imitating the behaviour of a cancer due to dead capillaries or something stopping the wound from healing.
Matt’s feeling so much better since finding out, though he’s still hobbling around because the Doctor removed the entire growth to be on the safe side. He actually apologised for that when he told us, but honestly it is so much better to be safe when it comes to such things. Taking out a larger sample than necessary is much better than leaving it there to spread if it had been something nasty!
Thank you to everyone who sent us their best wishes, we really appreciate all the support we have been given.
