How, exactly, does one prepare for an oncology appointment?  On the one hand I am looking forward to it.  I need answers.  I want to know what this diagnosis means for my son.  What are the treatment options?  How do his scans look?  How long?

On the other hand I don’t want to go.  It makes it all too real.  How do you live with something like this?  I don’t do well with waiting.  And I suspect there is going to be a lot of ‘wait and see’.
