Hopeful news

Brent spoke with my pulmonologist this am, to let him know the plan. When Brent mentioned how concerned with the tumor's proximity to the right mainstem the thoracic surgeon had been based on my PET, my pulmonologist was very surprised and adamant that the tumor was a good distance away. He should know since he was down there with a scope!! I hope so. I would like to avoid a pneumonectomy if at all possible. The pulmonologist was going to speak with the surgeon today about that as well as maintenance lung meds he wants me on....So, cross your fingers!


  1. Oh my gosh! What great news! I love you, Ruth

  2. Hey Celeste, I really don't have this down yet. I sent you a message to myself LOL. Anyway, just wanted you to know that I will be thinking of you and praying for you tomm as you go for radiation. Love you.

  3. Wow, I wasn't on the computer much the past couple of days and you've been quite busy on here! You will be on my heart and miond all day today AND Friday. I wish had a magic wand and could just show up there and give you a hug, but, if I had a magic wand, I'd probably just make that melenoma dissapear and THEN give you a hug... ;) LOVE YOU, please take care and rest up,
