Surgery Scheduled

Nancy B

Recommended Posts

All tests came out good, so surgery will be Monday, July 10, 10:00 am. He will do a bronchoscopy first and if he can find anything to biopsy, he will. If he does and they find small cell, they will stop surgery and I guess then proceed to chemo and radiation.

If he can't find anything to biopsy (he doubts he will), then he will go ahead and do a completion phenmonectomy, take out the rest of my left lung so he can get to the tumor so they can biopsy it. Since I have had both SCLC and NSCLC (leave it to me to be odd) they have to know what it is to properly treat it. I am alittle nervous as he says that this surgery is riskier than the first two but he is an accomplished surgeon and does lung transplant surgeries.

3rd time's a charm, maybe I will get it right this time and not have to do this again.

We have a race in Sonoma, CA the first weekend in August and my goal is to be there.

I sure would appreciate your thoughts and prayers.

Love and hugs to you all,

Nancy B

Oh Nancy,

I feel so bad. I've just not felt like posting and haven't kept in touch with you.

You must be so scared. Just remember all the things we've talked about in the past. You know you can trust God. Remember? If you're like me, though, it helps to be reminded often:

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~Jeremiah 29:11

Even if things don't go the way we want, we're under His umbrella of love and promises, so the ultimate end result has to be wonderful. You're in good Hands, Nancy - the best! I had to be reminded of that this week myself.

Take care and write when you can.

Oh Kiddo, I know your tummy is in knots over all this, and rightfully so! :roll: I am so very impressed with the sounds of your surgeon. :D He sure sounds to me like he knows what the heck he is doing! :wink: HOORAY!

I am saying prayers and more prayers and MORE PRAYERS that all this will work out just fine for you.

Your a wonderful friend and a an awesome lady and I want nothing but the very best for you.

I feel that between your determination and your surgeon's skills, this will be a successful surgery.

Monday, July 10 at 10 am I'll be thinking of you.

As always, all my best wishes for a complete success!

Prayers for guidance to your surgeon's hands & to the path's. 'scope to find out whatever the heck is causing the upheaval this time...Nancy, we just gotta put our foot down. After this scare, no more, okay?

Put your fears at His feet and claim His victory as your own.
