After Gustavo's appointment at the Juravinski Cancer Centre here in Hamilton, we were very relieved to hear that the oncologist thinks that it is very unlikely that the spots on his liver and lung are cancer-related, seeing as how his lymph nodes were clear. Apparently all signs point to it having been a stage one cancer contained to the testicle that they removed. He still has to undergo surveillance to make sure that these spots do not grow (another scan in late August/early September), but the most likely thing is that they are benign hemangiomas. The tumour was a strange one, apparently, so they thought that he may have needed some radiation, just in case, but then finally decided that he does not at this point. So, we are breathing a big, audible sigh of relief now!
He is going for another CT scan next week to make sure everything is okay, and then we will be able to start thinking about planning our trip again....
By way of celebration, we decided to spend a few days at Killbear Provincial Park on Georgian Bay, just north of Parry Sound.
The only problem now is that our camera broke :-(
so we don't have any evidence of the really gniess rock formations at the park, or proof that Ariel and Mateo jumped off a cliff and swam to shore....

update: Thanks to Carla and Mariano, who were at Killbear with us, we now have photo evidence of Killbear.
