The waiting has been sooooo long. Being told in August of 2011 about this and then finally being scheduled for surgery, has made for a long wait. Surgery is scheduled for this afternoon, which means more waiting today. I'm not a very patient person by nature and the waiting for test results and a surgery date has been trying my patience. Of course after the surgery I'll be waiting for the pathology results of the lobectomy.
I'm hopefull that I won't have any deficits from the surgery. Several family members are traveling to town for the surgery. I told them they don't get to watch, but they are still interested. I'll try to post as soon as I can.
