Medical Update

Hi all! Just a quick note to say that I'm already home from my appointment this morning with the surgeon - you've got to love doctors' offices who get you in on time and out quickly!!

It was a good appointment. She feels that the best step at this point is to do an outpatient surgery to remove a small area, so we have that scheduled for the 24th. The surgery shouldn't be anything too difficult and I'm sure the hardest part will be fasting beforehand (does this get me out of Ash Wednesday?)

After the surgery and the resulting lab diagnostics, I will likely be meeting with an Oncologist for a consultation. Just to reiterate, this is not cancer, but rather sort of a pre-cancer diagnosis, so I'm optimistic that things should be resolved very soon and with great results.

Thanks to all of you for your prayers and support. Now let me know how I can pray for you to return the favor!

Awesome, Lisa! I know that God has great things in store for you! And you can just forget about me keeping you out of my prayers. Nice try. :)

My mom and a close friend of mine has gone through the same operation as you. As you said the hardest thing is the fasting before hand, but don't forget the pampering you get from your family afterwards. :)

Good luck!

My computer was being dreadfully slow and unresponsive when you posted your earlier request, but now it's permitting me to stop by and say: praying for you! I'll add your intentions to my rosary.
