Meeting with the Lung Surgeon
I probably haven't posted this yet and if I have forgive me, but a few weeks ago I was referred tot he cancer rehab program - basically PT for cancer survivors. This is to help minimize obstacles and maximize your good days. So, I have been doing that and, because of this, I am spending more time around the hospital. Well, yesterday, I had some time between my appointments and I stopped by my colon/rectal surgeons office. He was in the office, which is rare, and I gave the staff there an update to my situation. He asked who my surgeon was, and I didn't know at that point. He said, "I want to know who is operating on you just to make sure." I told him I would be sure to contact him with the name and, as I said good bye, they told me to be sure to tell them when the surgery is. I told them that I would and said, "I don't think his guy will ever meet anyone so happy to have them cut them open!" My surgeon laughed and said, "I love the attitude! You have the best attitude." Well, I got the lung surgeon's name in the afternoon and set the appointment. The woman helping me was very nice and she made it sound like they had been waiting for me. I called my c/r surgeon's office and upon hearing his name gave the thumbs up. WHEW! I am set to meet with the lung surgeon on Thursday. I am a bit nervous, but all of that will go away when I meet him. I just need to know what I need to do, how much time to heal, etc. I leave the rest to him and Grant. More on Thursday.....love, Ang

More wonderful news. You are in the most capable hands, surrounded by love and good wishes from practically everyone who has ever come in contact with you. Wish I could be there to commiserate on the couch (and drink Grant's yummy lattes). Miss you and look forward to making travel plans on the other side of this adventure.
You are right, it's kind of weird to say but I'm very excited for you to have lung surgery!
