Change in My Surgery Tomorrow

The surgeon has changed his mind about what he is going to do tomorrow. His PA called me this afternoon. He is no longer even going to start with the VATS procedure to see if it would work for him.

He is cutting the left side of me (right where I have nerve damage pain from the nerves being nicked back when I had my BMX with node removal) to gain better access to the spot on my lung. He is going to cut it out, and send it right to pathology. If it comes back cancer, he will cut the whole lesion out plus some more for clean margins. I am going to ask him to just cut the whole thing out anyway and see what he says. I also have to make sure he takes enough out for the Pulmonologist to run the labs HE wants to looking for diseases, especially a lung disease that runs with German/Irish ancestry.

I have been too darn busy these past two days to worry much. Had to take Brian to the ER last night becuase he was hooked on a lure the same time as a fish (just like I did a summer or two ago). It was in so deep there was no way he could get it out. It was to bad because the fish were biting.

Today I have been on the go since I woke up. Took care of some paperwork, went to Walmart, picked up pills at the pharmacy so I am all stocked up, picked a whole walmart sack of grean beans from the garden (Brian came out and  helped, he also cut the ends of for me), then I had to clean them, chop them, can them, and with the rest I made Grean Bean Soup, and I totally cleaned the bathroom.


Im exhausted. good night.

and I am sorry you had to leave when the fish were biting. I went with my boys Sunday and it is the first time that I caught fish and they were skunked!
Crossing all for a good biopsy.
