Day 231 in my wandering toward my Mickey meet-up.
Today’s plan to pursue better health was to see Dr. Elena Diaz, a gynecological oncologist. I feel much better after seeing her.
She told me that we won’t know the stage of the cancer until surgery. But there are three phases to the biopsy that I had. 1 is least number of cancer cells present. 2 is more cancer cells present. 3 is most cancer cells present. My biopsy was a 2.
I will be scheduled for surgery in the next 30 days. I should receive a call by Tuesday telling me when the surgery is to be. I will have the surgery at Evanston Hospital (where the robot is located), and if all goes well, I will just spend one night in the hospital. Before surgery I have to see my primary care physician for a physical to make sure I am healthy enough for surgery. And I will have a ct scan to make sure everything looks OK.
I am so ready for the surgery. I will just breathe easier when the cancer is out of me. “To cut is to heal,” my dear friend Wayne says. I believe it in this case.
Well, I’m off to pamper myself and think on more pleasant things for the rest of the day.
Meet you at the Kingdom!
