Well, I thought I had a plan...

So, the plan was Cyber all week and Keytruda on Friday.  Well, on Tuesday I got a call that said, "Hi!  I am confirming your procedure tomorrow."  I was like, "I have a procedure tomorrow?"  "Yes, it was moved up from Friday."  I replied with, "I have a procedure on Friday?"

Here is the gist....Keytruda postponed until next week, but a rigid broncoscopy is on like Donkey Kong.  It is surgery under general, but it will clear out my lungs of all this "crap" I am coughing up.  The last one I coughed up was right after bible study.  Like, I went to my car and cough cough - 1 inch my 1.5 inch tumor/crap/junk comes flying out.  Thank you God for waiting till I got out of your house!  I reported it to Hank and he was done.  Hence the speed in which this was done even without the patients knowledge.  I met the Doc after I signed all the consents which is a little backwards.  He has wild hair and called himself a plumber.  He is super confident in what he does and I had to slow him down a couple times - which he did quite nicely.  I think he may be asked to do that A LOT.  He seems to think he can stop my coughing and for that I am grateful.  All the docs working on me now are discussing what would help them and if he can do this for that, etc., for which again, I am grateful.  Today,  I am sore - between all the coughing and Cyber, my chest hurts, but that may be cleaned up tomorrow.  So, last Cyber today.  Surgery tomorrow.

Note:   I found out yesterday his nickname is "Flash" for Flash Gordon (Gorden being his last name).  SMILE - "Flashy, yes Flashy will do JUST fine."

Happy Thursday,

Ang
