Great to hear you have a date!! And yes, when you cough after resection, putting it bluntly, it sucks!! They make you cough also… Have some fun tonite! I’m sitting in Chemo now, about 2/3 done, another 1.5 hours to go… Party tonite at my wife’s friend’s surprise 50th bday party too so I’ll be having a good time with you in spirit! Lots of luck in a couple of weeks!March 23, 2012 at 2:44 am #59261peggypMember
Glad to hear that you are going out to have some fun and take your mind off worrying about your resection. Hope your cough is gone by then, but remember to press a pillow against your stomach if you have to cough after your resection. It helps ease the pain. Go dance the night away and have a good time.

Kris…seems that we are always in a waiting game. Glad that you are out having fun. Think positive: two weeks of healing followed by the big day.

We waited one month for my wife’s surgery. Every night was a sleepless night. I know the wait is frightening. Hang in there. Surgery is a good thing! My wife recovered beautifully.
Best of luck with your surgery. I look forward to more of your posts in the Good News.

Hey, Kris. Now come on, you just know everything is going to be fine. With all of us rooting and pulling for you, how can you miss? I agree a night out tonight will do you wonders. I hope your cough ends also and remember:
I asked for strength.
God gave me difficulties to make me strong.
I asked for wisdom.
God gave me problems to solve.
I asked for prosperity.
God gave me brawn and brain to work.
I asked for courage.
God gave me dangers to overcome.
I asked for patience.
God placed me in situations where I was forced to wait.
I asked for love.
God gave me troubled people to help.
I asked for favors.
God gave me opportunities.
I received nothing I wanted.
I received everything I needed.March 23, 2012 at 12:32 am #59256pamelaSpectator
I think a night of fun is just what the doctor ordered. Have a great time and try not to worry too much. I think you will do great with your surgery. You are due for some great luck, girl. Take care.

I’m putting this in good news, because a year ago I didn’t know if I’d ever be posting this! So it’s good news, right??
My resection is finally scheduled for April 4. My parents are coming up on the 1st to take care of me while I need them.
I’ve known for a few weeks what the schedule is, and I have to say I wish I hadn’t had so much time to wait. The stress is unbelievable. And since my embolization 2 weeks ago, I haven’t felt well. So I’ve been home alone. With my thoughts and fears. No matter how I feel, tonight I am going out to dancing to visit with my friends, and try to take my mind off of everything. I don’t know that I am up to dancing, but I need to get out.
I just hope this cough/congestion ends soon. They nicked my lung during the embo and it’s been bad for a couple of weeks. (pneumonialike). It better be gone by April 4th because I want to cough on my own timetable, not my lung’s. Anyone who’s been thru one of these surgeries knows you have to cough, and how much it hurts! I certainly don’t want my lungs making me cough! That’ll be rough.
Just 2 weeks and I’ll be writing in this section again. About how well the surgery went. I just need to keep thinking that way!
