Hi all, A lots happened in the last few days. I went to the chemo doctor that I had all the problems with. Boy, what a change!!! I went to him yesterday. I prayed before he came in to the room. I don't know if God answered my prayers that fast, or if he was just having a really bad day the other time. He was as different as night is to day. He was really nice. Joking around and everything. Shook my hand and I about fell over. He said that he was praying that I would beat this. He put me on a blood thinner, since I still have the port in my chest. He said to go off it about 4-5 days before surgery. He did some blood work. Said I seemed to be doing well. Said probably would need more chemo after surgery and I said that I really get sick and he said they had plenty of "puke" drugs. Like I said, he was really nice. My surgeons office called today and said they had scheduled surgery for May 20th, so 4 weeks from today, I will have it. I am so scared now that the big date has been set. More nervous than I was the first time I had surgery and I thought I'd never be that scared again. I really appreciate all the advice and friendship that I've shared here. So glad that I found this group. Please bare with my up and down moods. I guess we all have them. I feel so close to you all, even though I've only been around here for a few weeks. Again, thanks for being there.
