Surgery

With my potassium back in normal range (over 4 is good), I am heading into surgery in the morning. I'm hoping that my lymph nodes do not have cancer in them--I am, however, prepared for the news if they do have cancer. It just means I will definitely have to have chemotherapy, instead of a maybe for chemo. I'll do whatever I need to do that gives me the best chances of survival.

The worst part of surgery for me has always been the anaesthesia. I vomit (projectile!) for a few hours afterward. This part I am truly not looking forward to! When I expressed this to the pre-op nurse, she said they can give me something to help prior to surgery. I just have to remember to tell them about this issue.

If I'm up to it tomorrow night, I'll put a new post up. If not-I'll be sure to update it on Tuesday.

Thank you to all who have prayed (and continue to pray) for me.
