Kay & Delaney went to New York City to see “Once on this Island”. They had a great time.
Kay is celebrating her new job with “Windstream“. She should start this week…Congratulations!
Linda met with her oncologist today- after an exam and looking at her pathology reports- her ONLY option at this point in the game is surgery to remove the tumor.
GOOD NEWS: Her current biopsy had a depth of .6 mm- he indicated anything under 1 had a good chance of needing only surgery. The cancer and a margin of normal-appearing skin (usually about ½ inch) around it are excised (cut out). It is out patient, she will come home and go back in 2 weeks. The cancer and surround area are sent to pathology- if the edges are cancer free- we are done (pray for this outcome).
If it comes back in those areas she goes to a second surgery where they are more radical and remove more area to include the lymph nodes in the groin. This procedure is called an inguinal lymph node dissection. Usually only lymph nodes on the same side as the cancer are removed. If the cancer is in or near the middle, then both sides may have to be done.
BAD NEWS: Linda’s has crossed the midline so she would have to have both taken out. The result is one week in the hospital followed by radiation.
We went today and had all her pre op tests done and she is scheduled for surgery January 25 at 9:30 AM.
The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center again has ranked No. 1 for cancer care by U.S. News & World Report’s annual “Best Hospitals” survey. Since the survey began in 1990, MD Anderson has been named one of the top two cancer hospitals, and it has ranked first 13 times in the last 16 years. We are going to -The Shawnee Mission Cancer Center who is proud to be a certified member of MD Anderson Cancer Network, the only network affiliate in Kansas and in the greater Kansas City metropolitan area.
Many cancer specialists at the Shawnee Mission Cancer Care are certified by MD Anderson Cancer Network and now can access a wide range of care resources developed by MD Anderson, including disease-specific and evidence-based treatment guidelines, safety practices and professional education.
I think we are in the best place possible, with top notch people so we will take all the prayers you got for now. Thanks.
Linda has been getting all her physical appointments (dental, mammo,physical) done and out of the way. During one of her exams the doctor did a biopsy on an area that would not heal. She received news yesterday that it came back as cancerous. She will see an oncologist at the end of the month (first available appointment) and we will make a plan at that point. The doctor did tell her she will probably need surgery to remove the area and then have radiation. We will know more after her appointment. We can use all the prayers you got! Thanks.
