lung surgery on Friday - stressy

I haven't posted for a while but have been getting comfort from reading posts. Some of you may recall I have been following a questionable spot on my lung. Given my history (I had a solitary lung met last April -- removed surgically followed by chemo), we decided this new spot has to come out. So, I'm having surgery on Friday. Hopefully a wedge using VATS altho last time that ended up not to be possible. I have been feeling quite calm and strong and positive up until a few days ago when I totally flipped out -- I have just been a stressy mess. Ah well -- we are all human, right? Anyway -- thanks for being such a wonderful souce of support to me, even when I don't write frequently. I hope to be out of the hospital and back on the board SOOONNN. And with an "all clear" biopsy report, of course!

Best of luck Tara. With your positive attitude and fortitude I'm sure everything will go well. Just keep your spirits up, and when you get nervous, just think how wonderful it will be to be 'spotless' (ha ha). Monica

Aw, tara....good vibes are heading your way! OK to be a 'stressy mess'...I still start freaking out about a week before ANY exam...even missed my rad/onc appt cause I 'FORGOT'....sigh...and I then got a good report....I SHOULD start thinking less (hummmm, don't know that THAT is possible...rofl).

BIG hugs, Kathi

Best of luck to you, Tara. It'll be good to get this all behind you; and you are entitled to be a stressy mess, but you sound pretty strong and focused to me! Keep us posted, Judy
