Surgery Set

Well the last couple of days I have been busy getting a bunch of appointments set. Although the radiologist that I saw on Tuesday said I could do activities, I don’t think she realizes the amount of activity I am used to doing. With a broken piece of plastic in my neck, I am not willing to take crazy chances. I have a couple of adult dance group performances in the next few days and I will do those, but am not going to be doing the big, fast, and furious dancefit and group fight classes until I have healed from surgery, so at the beginning of the new year, I think. Pushing snow off the driveway was my exercise today. I would have taken Tallinn for a walk but it was SLICK in my neighborhood today and pretty windy and cold. Tomorrow afternoon I have an appointment with an oncology nurse practitioner, who will make sure I am healthy enough for the surgery. No one has listened to my heart or lungs for over 2 years thanks to COVID and my local doctor, who prefers to just do a zoom call or a phone call every 4 months. As long as nothing remarkable shows up during that physical, I will be first case next Thursday morning, Dec 22nd. My local doctor does not feel that I need another port at this point, so they will just be removing it. It should be an easy enough procedure, but they did warn me that because I have had this port for 3 years, that there may be a lot of scar tissue adhered to the port, so just to be aware of that. I should be home by noon that day to recover and lounge around the day. Tim will arrive late the next night, so I should be feeling a bit better by then. I will be sore over Christmas, but we will be having a quiet, at home affair, which will do just fine. I also got my CT scans set up for January 30th…then my zoom appointment with my Mayo Clinic sarcoma specialist to follow in early February. So I am set for now! Thanks for all of your prayers !

  1. Hey, Cyndi – praying that the surgery goes well and heals up quickly afterwards. The words “I don’t think she realizes the amount of activity I am used to doing” – ain’t that the truth! 🙂 It would have to be seen to be believed.

    Take care, and a blessed Advent and Merry Christmas to you and your family – Blessings, Sean

  2. You are always in my prayers. I’m so glad Tim is going to make it home for Christmas. Nothing like being surrounded by our loved ones when we face challenges. Love you baby girl
