Topic: OH MY! Didn't see that one coming!
Lee and I went down to Phoenix yesterday to talk with the top specialists in our state about removing the tumor wrapped around his bile duct. It all started out great...until he said that Lee not only needs the tumor removed, but he needs a complete liver transplant!!!! When he finished his diagnosis, he asked if we had any questions...QUESTIONS! WHAT THE HECK DID YOU JUST SAY!? WAIT A SEC...CAN YOU RUN THAT BY US ONE MORE TIME! YA KNOW, WE ARE PRETTY EDUCATED PEOPLE HERE....MAYBE WE JUST DIDN'T HEAR YA QUITE RIGHT....YOU SAID WHAT!!!!????? Of course, we didn't say that...but I can pretty much tell ya the only thing going through both our minds was WHAT THE @#$%! So off to Mayo in Rochester, Minnesota...any experiences with this hospital....anyone with a new liver out there...or waiting for one....we might have to start chemo before we head on up there...I don't know! UUUUGGGGGHHHHH! HELP!! On the bright side...Lee FINALLY got his appetite back!!! And food is actually tastier to him! All of your ideas worked like a charm! Thank you for all of them! He even gained two pounds this week! Ladies, I don't know about you....but when was the last time we ever thought...Man, I gotta gain two pounds this week! AND I can't wait to get started! BRING IT ON!!
