Another Tuesday PM
These redundant titles are getting old! Thoracic surgeons came by and consented Tom for everything in the world, and they will do the biopsy Wednesday - woohoo!! The actual procedure involves cutting just above his sternum and snaking a camera and instruments behind his sternum to remove one lymph node and test the heck out of it. It could be an out-pt procedure. Maybe now we can start treating the problem, not just making it up as we go along. Don't get me wrong - I don't expect answers tomorrow, but at least we are finally on the hunt for a cause, not just symptom management. He isn't coughing as much today, but is sleeping way more. Hmmm... I am hoping we also get to come home tomorrow. I haven't seen my kids since Monday morning, and I kinda miss them!
