Hi Everyone,

     Looks like I am going back to surgery, CAT Scan showed something in the lung.  Seeing Drs. on Friday and surgeon on Tuesday and my Birthday is Saturday! So lets get this thing out and let me celebrate another year!  I will try and post on Wednesday when I have all the facts of everything!

     But I can promise this will not keep me down, I am 5 months out from making my 5 year mark and I certainly intend on hitting that mark!

                                                           Love and prayers for good health!

                                                            Brenda

Oh, Brenda, sorry to hear that! But, as experience shows, NOTHING keeps you down! Will keep fingers crossed for you!

And happy birthday, we expect nothing less than 20 more birthdays at least!

Oh Brenda, glad you let us know. bummer..

Confused..Why are they doing surgery if they don't know what "it" is?

If you think about it, we ONLY have the gift of today!

So with that said, may your birthday be YOUR day and enJOY!

Whatcha doing for your special day?

Great attitude is contagious!

Sending you healing hugs~

Jan

Hi Brenda,

I was sad to read your news. I know that you will sail through this, as you have all the other surgeries and obstacles. You are one courageous lady and quite the fighter. I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers, dear girl!

And have a FABULOUS birthday. We want to celebrate the 5 years with you, too!!

Big hugs

Jojo

So sorry to hear that. I'm confused to about why surgery if they're unsure what it is. But in any case, wishing you a quick and easy recovery and a very happy birthday.

10 to one Brenda gets that bugger zapped or sliced and she will be good for another couple years. By then we will have several more options. Only an inconvenience and unnecessary wasted time. NTI for a TOB.

Thank you for all the support! No surgery date yet, they have found something on my heart as well and I have been getting test after test after test! I will get my final word on Wednesday, March 9.  I will let everyone know what is going to happen!

                                     Love to all!

Oh, Brenda, I'm sorry but I'm sure nothing can stop you from your goal, first five year goal is almost achieved, why not setting a new goal? What about a 10-year-goal?

You're in my thoughts and prayers

Wish for easy, uneventful surgery and quick recovery

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

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~

Hi Brenda,

Being operable is good news, indeed. I can understand why the tumor took up residence in your heart....we love your sweet, warm heart, too!  I am praying for you and sending good thoughts your way. We are here for you!

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.

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.

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!

                                            Brenda

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

Hi Brenda,

You have been through many surgeries, but you always pull through with strength and grace! I am sure it will be the same this time around.

I think about Djinnie a lot too. In fact the other day I opened my email account to read any new emails and an old email of Djinnie's popped up front and centre. She sure did always know the exact right thing to say, didn't she? And always put a spin of humor on everything. She was a beautiful soul.

I am doing well.  And I retire in a few months! So very much looking forward to that.

I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers for a successful and uneventful surgery!

Big hugs

Jojo
