Hey everyone!

Well, my sternotomy is scheduled for Wednesday. Believe it or not, I'm not the least bit nervous! I guess I've been on the cutting board so much that it's becoming like a second home to me...LOL! Not sure how long my recovery will be so I don't think I will be on the board for the next few weeks, but I will be surely thinking of you all! For those of you who haven't followed my story, I'm having a bilateral excision of lung nodules. I had VATS x 4(video assisted thoracic surgery)last August for nodules on my left lung, but they said there were too many in the right lung to do anything with. I had more chemo and since there have been no new nodules to pop up, my surgeon feels confident she can get them all out now...both lungs. I've also had a liver resection, and a LAR (low anterior resection-rectum & little bit of colon). Anyway, I'm anxious to get this over with and very hopeful that this will be a successful procedure. Peace and blessings to you all and I will check in once I'm up and around again.

    Hi Sheri,

    Wow, a surgery veteran- lol! I will certainly be thinking of and praying for you for the surgery this Wednesday. That's actually exciting to me to know that about both of your lung surgeries- that they did the surgery on just one lung before even though there were too many nodules in the other lung & that now chemo has enabled you to have the other lung taken care of now, too. That gives me hope for myself too.

    Let us know how things go- hugs to you!

    From a Fellow Lung Surgery Patient....
    This all sounds good, Sheri!

    Sounds like you got it this time - you've fought long and hard and now it's time to reap what you have sown...may the pain and recovery fade quickly and you'll be a new and improved woman with your health right by your side.

    I understand all to well how painful and challenging lung surgery recovery can be....I wish you nothing but the best - all the success to you. Remember, "breathe deeply" - that one hurts, right?

    -Craig
