God is good.

Got a call from the surgeon's office about 4:30 this afternoon. The biopsy on the suspicious lymph node came back negative. So we're pressing on toward surgery. Should have the date in a day or so. Have all the pre-op stuff scheduled for tomorrow (breathing test, etc.)

Thanks for all your comments and prayers. Guess I'll make it to the junior class after all.
This stuff in my abdomen still has me concerned and is quite painful but I guess we'll figure it out when we do the surgery.

Michael,

What are you next steps to obtaining a surgery date? We look forward to having you progress with us. Wish like hell I could find a way to bring the Stage 4's along to surgery also.

Hoping and praying that you are as well as can be and moving forward 1 step at a time.

No date yet........I thought with all the helter skelter stuff they had me going through, PET scan prior to the tumor board meeting, the colonoscopy, the biopsy of the node and the breathing test ans such, that after I finished it all that, I thought the next day they would call with a surgery date.......BUT.....unfortunately no calls yet. I've made 3 calls and left three messages with the nurses.. It's beginning to look like a personal desk pounding visit may be in order.

Anyway, I'm still looking forward to completing the junior class with the others and am definitely praying for those with surgery this week.

Thanks for thinking of me.

Michael:

Maybe I was just lucky in that I only had to call once to remind them to schedule my MIE and call me with a date. I "threatened" (well, not in a threatening way :-) ) to call every morning until I was scheduled, and by lunchtime I was scheduled. That was at Mass General in Boston. I had posted on the board that I didn't want to bug them, and Niki quite rightly advised to not worry about it. We are consumers and they are the contract service providers - plus this is our lives we're talking about! So call often or go in and (rhetorically) pound the desk. It's your right and your obligation to yourself.
