The surgery on Thursday was a success. They placed gold fiducial seeds into lymph nodes smack in the middle of my chest (method? A rigid scope, a very long needle, an ultrasound and other stuff down my throat.) This one worked unlike the one last week! (I’m thankful for General Anesthesia) From what I hear the procedure to implant these seeds this way has been done two to three times in Boston and few in Germany. Interesting. I begin a second round of pin point radiation asap (from my experience this year pinpointing a date is a lot harder than pinpointing a tumor). I am grateful for modern medicine and a Dr. willing to try new things.
For right now we're just gearing up for Christmas. I've decided next year I'm going to get my cards and the cards for Ward's office done before December 1. It's crazy trying to get them all done right before Christmas. Tonight we had our Polar Express party. This is one of the girls favorite traditions. We read the story, watch the movie with popcorn and of course hot chocolate (at just the right moment) and then we ring the bells before they go to bed. It's so fun to just do things with the five of us sometimes. I'm so glad I get to be here for this.
