Slowly Moving Along

I have been holding back on updating, because I am trying to get concrete info and dates and things have been progressing slowly, but they are progressing.

We met with the interventional radiologist dr. on the 31st of December to discuss doing the RFA procedure. He is concerned that my lung might be in the way of doing this procedure in relation to where the tumor is located.

At any rate the bottom line is he will be talking to my surgeon Dr. Chamberlain and some other specialists and I am told I will be hearing from them on Monday the 4th with the result of their discussion. So we are still in a holding pattern but as my friend/nurse Kathy told me, it is a good thing that this is taking time, in that many doctors/specialists are looking at this case and taking every care and precaution to do the very best thing for the best result which is 100% tumor death.
And as always she is right.

Thank you everyone for the emails, and messages and encouragement and prayers. I have been a mental and spiritual wreck over this and every comment, and note of encouragement and love I have been receiving helps me in unmeasurable ways. So I do thank you from the bottom of my heart.

When we have more concrete dates and such myself or Fran will definitely be posting.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year, I know my family did.

Much Love,

As always we are thinking and praying for you. And I will be thinking positive thoughts on Monday January 4th - to make sure that the doctors come up with the best possible solution!

Much love,
