when it rains it pours and I have lost my umbrella and we are getting soaked. Spent from a little after eleven today to about five thirty out at SBL
I will give you a short run down on what I found out. I am to have a cardiac cath on the 8th just to make sure that they are not going to have to deal with more than the aortic valve. The results will be sent to a cardiovascular surgeon and an appt will be set up for me to meet with him and when I do the surgery will be scheduled. They wanted to do the cath on Friday, but my INR was still too high. I will find out tomorrow what they think I should do to get it lower.
Now for Jeff. The oncologist did not have a repport from Springfield but he had looked over the PET scan carefully and had his game plan all ready to set in motion. There are two spots on the lung ( I suppose the right side, never was told) and he wanted a needle biopsy done on each one of them. When we left the office to have blood drawn and set up the biopsy, the report from Springfield came in and the doctors there concurred with the treatment plan of the doctor here. If there is cancer in the lung, that means it has mestasized and there will be nothing that can be done. The biopsies were taken this afternoon and we should have the results in two to three days. The doctor out here is not beating around the bush about things.
We have a lot to take before the Lord. I ask for guidance, protection and strength to withstand the wiles of the enemy.
I am very tired tonight and still have clothes in the dryer to take care of so I am going to say
"God bless you and keep you"
PS Thanks for all the prayers and words of encouragement. You will never know how comforting they are
