    Here it is!

    Good news is surgery can be done! It seems that the tumor in the left lung has grown into my heart.  I will be having left bottom portion of lung removed, then they will be breaking a rib, and then stopping my heart to remove tumor in "one" piece from the heart valve.  That is the jest of everything, this is a little scary, but not as scary if it was "inoperable", so we are very happy to get this surgery out of the way and are looking forward to a great Spring and Summer.  No surgery date yet, have to meet the cardiac surgeon on Tuesday, and from there I will be getting my call for a surgery date!  Please continue prayers and well wishes, we are so thankful for them all!

    I will let everyone know when I get a surgery date!

                                                   Love and prayers for good health to us all!

                                                    Brenda

    Good Lord

    That's big stuff Brenda. Cry  I will keep you in my prayers, as I'm quite sure many here will do the same.  I'll pray too that your surgeons hands are blessed with a skill, quickness and gentleness to do what needs to be done and get the heck out, leaving you with many healthy years after recovery.

    Please keep us posted.

    Hugs and lots of love,

    Donna~

    Brenda, you know that I have complete faith in you. Just focus on the outcome. You won't want to do too much too soon. But you will do well. No doubt about it. Karma.

    Yay for surgery!

    Lucky you - you'll be getting rid of the buggers! Fox is right - keep your mind on the outcome. This, too, will recede, soon enough, in the rear-view mirror. Happy birthday.

    Surgery Date!

    Hi All,

         I have finally gotten a surgery date, seems it is quite difficult to set up two specialist sugereons (lung and heart) for a same day, same time surgery, but it is going to be on April 15.  I will be going in the hospital on April 14 and surgery the next day! I will try and post as soon as I can after surgery!

                                               Love and prayers for good health to all!

    7 Days Left

    Jojo,

         I have 7 days left before my surgery.  I am little nervous about this one, but it will be alright! How are you doing? Hoping everything is really good for you! I was just thinking about DJennie the other day, I sure do miss her.  No matter what she always said the right thing! Praying everything is good for you and that it continues to be that way for you!

       Thanks for all the great karma, well wishes, and prayers I really do appreciate them!

                                                                 Love and prayers for good health to us all!

                                                                   Brenda
