Hi Tom. I do remember you. I hope all is well for you. Yes, I was my mom’s advocate, atleast as much as she would allow. She was a fiercely independent lady which was a curse and a blessing. LOL. As I’m starting this diagnostic journey I realize how little I actually knew about how she felt when she was at this stage. I’m meeting with a Thoracic surgeon tomorrow to see what she thinks. I’m pretty sure she’ll want to see my next CT scan (in January) before going forward. But I’m anxious to hear what she says the next steps may be if the CT scan shows any changes. I’m sure I’ll be back here with a million questions. I feel like everyone here is my best resource and I appreciate that more than I can say.
