Waiting, Waiting….

4:50pm Talked to both my Oncologist office and my Urologist office today. Appears that my interpretation of “remove kidney” immediately has a different meaning to my Drs than it does to me. I am scheduled to meet with my Urologist Monday (Oct 1st) afternoon at this point. At that meeting we will find out when surgery is.

Less than 36 hours ago we got the news that Nate our oldest son, age 39 & father of 4, has cancer.  Heart stopping news… He had felt extremely fatigued for a few weeks (we had no idea) and went for a physical.  The blood draw came back with alarming numbers so another blood draw and the…
