Just wanted to share the good news. We had our presurgery meetings with all the drs and the PET/CAT scan was good, all other tests good so the surgery will still take place on this coming Tuesday at 7:30 am. The feedings with the NG tube have helped, evidently I was showing malnutrition and finally my bloodwork came back normal for that. Guess all the trouble with the tube was worth it. Just hope I heal good. The dr went into all the ins and outs of the surgery, when he got to the incision in the side of my neck and told me about that I told him I hope I forget what you just said. All the prayers and support have kept me calm, I asked the nurses Is something wrong with me? I feel calm and not too worried, guess I just want to go ahead and be able to eat something besides broth and milkshakes and get the surgery over with. I have full confidence in Dr. Krasna, he is very kind and took his time answering our questions. It sure has been a long day, 9:00 am to 1 pm. I had a bad moment this am and I asked our Kitten to help me. She did and I know she will help all of us when we ask. I want to thank everyone for all the information, support and prayers that have been given to me on this board. I go in 12/8 and if all goes well, will come home on 12/22 just in time for Christmas. My hubby Ron is sweet, he says he is getting me for Christmas. He has been such a trooper thru all this, lucky to have him. take care and prayers for all!!
