... Oh my... that's a relief.

Heck, I'll bet you aren't even surprised!

Seriously though, I appreciate the moral support.

The mediastinoscopy is planned for March 28. That's just a week from tomorrow.

OK, everyone. That is now tomorrow, unless something changed.

Thank you for remembering. Nothing changed. At 10:45 a.m., I'm supposed to be at the hospital with the procedure scheduled for 1:15 p.m.

The procedure went fine. He (surgeon) found cancer as expected and got what he could out. Couldn't get some of it due to danger from proximity to blood veins/vessels. He expects the remainder will be treated with radiation, but we won't really know the plan until talking with the oncologist.

I'm going back to bed but thank all of you so much.

Thank you for letting us know so quick and am glad the surgery went fine. Hopefully the rest will be gotten with chemo or radiation....still sending MOJO!

I'm with them. I'm not thrilled with the news, but I remember when it looked so grim before and you beat it back. I'm counting on your medical team to do all the right things.

A miracle would be good, too.

For what it is worth, Anne's cancer was treated surgically, but it was the radiation treatment that knocked it out. She would literally take a break during work to go in get her treatment and return to work.

It never bothered her in any specific way although we believe that it did somewhat sap her energy.

Glad you've got the surgery out of the way, D.

Now, to get you healed up and get the rest of the treatment on track, so that you can get healed up once and for all! Hope you're feeling better; I know surgery can really punch you, having been there myself.

Rots and rots of healing light headed your way!!!

Thank you.

Dr. L. feels we need to be as aggressive as possible. If it's determined that my liver can handle it, there will be a combination of radiation treatments and chemotherapy. I need a week or two to heal from last week's procedure before they can start radiation, plus they want to get a very detailed scan of my brain to make absolutely certain no cancer sneaked in there. If it did, it's a game changer. Am allergic to IV iodine dye so they need to use something else for contrast. Also, they need to decide if any specific chemo will be easier on my liver than others.

We had a scare with my brother admitted to the hospital today; they thought he might have contracted meningitis but have since ruled that out. What a relief! His kidney is still being rejected, but once they got him rehydrated he thought a turkey sandwich sounded good.

I'm going to lie down but hope to post more tomorrow. Am supposed to have a test to get a baseline of my current lung functioning because the radiation may zap some healthy lung tissue. I saw the radiation oncologist right after Dr. L. (my primary oncologist).

Any appointments I can arrange for tomorrow and/or Friday, I will. Then back to Dr. L. a week from today to see where we stand and start (to quote a dear friend) kicking cancer's ass.
