First, thank you to those who responded to my blog regarding my mom getting the same cancer I have.
Today we had another procedure in preparation for a possible cyberknife. The surgeon feels my mom is not a candidiate for a lobectomy due to her weight, etc.
He is asking for another biopsy (one was done a month ago)...not sure I understand why. He stated today "It is cancer" - and it's been almost two months since diagnosis (this thing is growing), then mentioned he had concerns about Mom "becoming oxygen dependent" (I am). Who cares? She's 80 years old. I feel like we're going in circles.
Could anyone put these puzzle pieces together? What is the surgeon waiting for? What is the oxygen addiction problem as long as she breathes better? Why are they waiting?
Besides that, it's 70 degrees here in South Florida and...cold! (Yes, you Northerners can shoot me for that). Happy New Years - and to all of us - a little easing up in 2013. We all could use it!
