Surgery Update

My last chemo treatment was April 3rd. While at Mayo, I was told that I would need to be off chemo for 6 to 8 weeks before I would be able to go into surgery. I'm now being told that I could go into surgery between 4 to 6 weeks. We meet with our surgeon this Friday to go over all the details of my surgery. I received a phone call from his office yesterday telling me that I am scheduled for surgery on May 5th. That is next Tuesday. I'm a bit nervous to go in that soon. If I never had the pleasure of meeting Susan Turley than I don't think I would be so nervous. I know that our situations are very different, especially this far along in my recovery but I can't help but have these feelings. In our meeting on Friday I will be requesting to put surgery off for another week and hope to have surgery the week of May 13th. That way, both kids will be done with baseball and they will be getting ready for their last week of school. I should be recoverd enough to be home for Dylan's birthday on May 25th. This is what I'm praying for. I'll keep you all posted after Friday's appointment. I also learned that my port should be flushed every 4 to 6 weeks as well.
