It has been a while. Here is the latest update

Thursday, March 06, 2014

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.

    You have been on my heart and in my prayers lately. So very glad to read this update on what you have been going through. It seems that most of the testing has been showing good results which is a positive thing. I know it must be a very scary thing you are going through and I am glad you have a sister that will be with your and, of course, Leslie. Know that you will also be in many of our prayers.

    I will be praying for a successful surgery and a speedy recovery for you as well as peace through it all as I await further news from or about you.

    Thank you for updating us on what is going on with you. I'm glad to hear that the moles and the brain scan came back negative. I'm sure it's still scary though to not know the source of the tumor on your lung though.

    I know you are a fighter and will come through all of this with flying colors! I will continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers! I'm glad your sister will be coming up to be with you during your surgery.

    I will update the A&I team and your Spaniels team if you can call me while in the hospital.

    Take care!

    Debbie, I just happened to see your blog link in my Friend Feed today, and I'm so glad I did. While I have not been able to keep up with the BSG challenges as I used to, I still try to keep track of my SP friends from there.

    I will read more later, but want you to know right now that I hope for nothing but the best results and most positive news for you always. emoticon

    You'll be in my prayers Debbie. It's scary not knowing the source of the tumor on your lung, but I have no doubt that the doctors will do everything they can to figure it out. Hopefully Leslie will post an update or two, so your SparkFriends know how you're doing.
