Well it has been a while since I gave an update on my health issues. I have been to see a dermatologist, a surgeon, had an MRI and a Lung Scan done in the past two weeks.
The 3 moles the dermatologist removed came back negative for cancer. So they haven't found the source for the tumor in my lung.
MRI shows no tumors on the brain. Which is good. The Lung Scan proves that I am a decent candidate for suregery.
My visit with the surgeon was good. He explained the surgery to me and how long I am going to be in the hospital. Since they are removing a small section of my lung. There will have to be a chest tube for a couple of days. The doctor doesn't think I should be in there more than a week.
My surgery is scheduled for next Monday at 8am. I have to check in at 6am. My younest sister is coming up to be with me for the surgery. So don't feel bad if you don't hear from me for a week or so. My roommate Leslie can get on my account if she needs to let you all know what is going on.
Cathy, if I am able to call you and give you more updates while in the hospital I will. Then you can let the team know for me.
I have been on Spark 5 years this month. I have known some of you from the beginning. I want you all to know that you are my second family. I love you all.
