Just wanted to thank everyone for your amazing support over the last few weeks. I feel like I've known you for a long time. Heading out to the hospital filled with anxiety and hope. I look forward to giving you an update in a few days.

Be well and God Bless each of you,

    My prediction...
    Scott,

    I predict you'll be watching the Packers this weekend while sipping a cold one. Of course it will be from the comfort of your living room, sitting in a recliner, and the cold one will be no stronger than ice water, but it will be the best game you have ever witnessed regardless of the outcome. You may be a fan for another 50 years or so, but this game you will remember like none before or after.

    Talk to you soon,

    Gary
  • Your going to do fine...
    Scott,

    I will be thinking and praying for you today. I'm confident you will soon be in our survivors club very soon. Follow you doctors directions and take it easy for a while. You will back to your normal routine before you know it.

    Thinking of you
    As a father of two and a patient waiting for the surgery, I am thinking of you. My operation date is Jan 24. Waiting is really hard...

    Relax, put your feet up, and just think of it as a quick weight loss program. Good luck!

    What more can I say. Today is the big day. You are going to wake up sore as can be. The good thing is that if they get the little buggar out for the most part with a small tumor like yours, you are cured. You will not be jumping up and down for the Packers Sunday. Maybe just a few moans. In a few months you are going to wonder why you were so worried. Anyway, Best
    wishes for a full and speedy recovery.

    Good luck and my prayers are with you
    Scott,

    I will be in your shoes next Tuesday. My thoughts and prayers are with you today. I am sure that even though you will wake up sore, the relief that it is out and the surgery is over will make it better. Hope to see a post from you in the next few days.

    Welcome aboard, sorry to hear your news, but there is a solid group of knowledgeable and supportive people here that will help if you need it. If you have spent any time here following the various threads then many of your questions may have already been answered, if not then I encourage you to do some reading here and research other sites like the Kidney Cancer Association. You should also feel free to post here as often as you like even if it is only to vent to an understanding ear. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Good luck and Godspeed,

    Best Of luck
    Hi Scott,
    Prayers going your way, and looking forward to an update in a few days. The support here is a gift from God. I don't know how I'd have survived the last 8 months. Everyone here is willing to help with any question you may have. I'm 7 months out of a left nephrectomy, and still come here to catch up, and get some questions answered. We're a tight-knit little group always here for your support. Best of luck to you...God bless......Katie

    Scott
    Love the Twins gear...being a Twin Cities girl myself!!! I was driving my car when
    my doc office called me. Initially I had to get a grip on myself as I was picking up my
    puppy from the groomer. It was almost like I went into an instant fog.
    I will be thinking about you, and wishing you a speedy recovery.
    Take Care
