My oncologist has coordinated with both a thoracic surgeon and private company that will attempt to graft my tumor into mice. We hope that they will be able to pinpoint and treat the mice with specially tailored chemotherapy drugs that will be just right to kill off the type of cancer that I have.
My anxiety level is through the roof right now! It's not the hugest surgery but it's a pretty big surgery. I probably just ran my last 10 K for a while... Though I really hope my recovery from this will be speedy and I'll be out there running again soon!
I'm being hospitalized this evening. My parents are coming to be here for the kids, my DH, and me. My family and friends are gearing up....
Please pray for me. Pray for the success of the doctors, surgeons, scientists... And the mice.
See y'all on the Other Side!
