Thumbs up Sandra and BDW Coming Up

Sandra & BDW -

Just realized you guys are both going in on Friday - something you want to tell us?

BDW - Glad that your doc signed off on you. Nervous yet?

Sandra - have you had your pre-op exam yet? Ready to go?

It will be over before you know it and soon the pain will be gone. Wishing you both all the best.

hi debbie, bruce...

i'm not too sure about surgery now...
i was called in to have another chest x-ray taken because the radiologist isn't sure of the last ones.
i had the first ones done 3/12 and another one done under the same circumstances (called to go in for it) last thursday (3/20) because she didn't like them...
i asked the techie why i've had 3 done witin this time frame and she said that it's probably becuse of some spots that show up... i saw them too but since she didn't have the previous ones we couldn't compare to see if i was worse or better.

i'm mentally and emotionally preparing myself to not freak out if i get a call tomorrow to cancel surgery.
maybe i can convince them to repeat them friday morning to see if my lungs have cleared up, since my operation is at 1pm...

Sandra, I hope you are good to go tomorrow. It sure is hard to be all psyched up to get it over with and have to wait. Regardless of what happens, the decision will be made to do what looks like the safer course for you at this time.

BDW, I'll be thinking good thoughts for you as well. Best of luck tomorrow and just keep thinking how close you are to feeling better!
