Surgery # ?

 Surgery # ? ( I have to figure that out) 
Friday, June 12th 2009

That is my surgery date. I will stay in for a day or two. I know you think I am crazy, but I actually enjoy the hospital. It will give me a day to rest and come out of my comatose sleepy state before I venture home. 
I asked Doc  to please take out another tumor while he was at it. He was hesitant to say yes, but after a while said it would be o.k. He will have to make a bigger incision. I just think the more I can pop out the better. Isn't it great that I think it's just so easy to pop them out. Wish it was that simple.  The tumor is already getting bigger. I wonder what happened. I still can't figure out why all of the sudden they started growing again. Was the 12 weeks of Brivanib working? What was it? I get frustrated trying to think about what changed. Where is the miracle cure?

My next 2 weeks will be filled with juicing, cleansing and eating really well. I heal so well and want to be in great shape going into this surgery. I know that my stomach will be the worst. 

Please say loving healing prayers for my friend Adina. She is the sweetest and has been on an incredible journey. She just ended the Brivanib too and is starting a new drug. Love you Adina.

Thanks friendly bloggers.

Hugs & cleansing,

Hey Michelle. Didn't tell you this tonight but Luke is going for surgery at the end of the month for a growth in his ear. It is called a cholesteatoma. It is not cancerous but the growth acts like a tumor and is very invasive. The rate of recurrence after surgery is very high. His surgery was supposed to be last Thursday but because of a problem with his blood work, it was put off for another month. Which means that is is growing bigger, getting more invasive and recurrence rate is higher. His summer is blown. So is mine. Maybe we should all hang out, recover and laugh together :-)

I added you to my blogrool. Also...Open invitation to you and your readers to participate in the Being Cancer Book Club. This month we are discussing “The Last Lecture” by Randy Pausch. “...the lecture he gave ... was about the importance of overcoming obstacles, of enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment (because “time is all you have…and you may find one day that you have less than you think”). It was a summation of everything Randy had come to believe. It was about living.”
Monday is Book Club day; Tuesday Guest Blog and Friday Cancer News Roundup.
Also check out Cancer Blog Links containing almost 200 blog links and Cancer Resources with 230 referenced sites, both divided into disease categories.
Please accept this invitation to join our growing cancer blogging community at www.beingcancer.net
Take care, Dennis
