More medical stuff and packing

Dear friends,

I only have a few minutes. I have lots of packing to do today. Greg gets home Wednesday and we will be tearing out carpets and moving furniture for a new carpet install on the 21st. Then Jenni's graduation on the 24th, her party on the 25th and the house on the market on the 26th. Then I will take a long nap!

I went to see my oncologist on Wednesday. He feels that one of the lumps I am feeling is definitely nothing to worry about, but one on my side he wanted the surgeon to check. He put ASAP on the order, and I was in to see her the next day. She told me the sad news that she feels that the only way to know for sure if it is something to be concerned about (cancer) is to remove and test the tissue. So that means a surgery, probably somewhere around the week of June 11th- no date set yet. My dear friends Betty and Gene are coming on the 12th and 13th, and I am so excited about that. Surgery will just be an outpatient thing and I have been through it enough times that I know the drill. She wants to do this before we move because she knows that even though usually these things are nothing or just scar tissue, sometimes they aren't. She knows me and my case, but doesn't want to hand me over to other doctors who won't have my history like she does. I also had a heart test yesterday as there are family history issues along with cancer treatment side effects to check out. I feel like my heart has been working hard lately. So that too is just precautionary. I will get results next week. I have a non-contrast CT scan on Tuesday to check my lungs. I have had little nodules in there for years. They hadn't changed in the whole 8 years we have been checking. Dr. Bourg just wants to make sure that is still the case.

So, how to pray? Pray that I would get all the packing that only I can do done before Greg gets home. I am tossing a lot! It is exciting. I have friends coming to help me- even this afternoon, plus Jenni and Jesse, and Allison will get home on Tuesday. Did I tell you we got the hot tub fixed? Jenni and I used it the other night after her AP test and it was nice to sit and talk. She took AP Calculus on Wed., AP English on Thursday and has AP Physics on Monday. Wednesday is her last day of school. Her end of the year concert has been Thursday through tonight. I went last night and am going again tonight. Dancing, costumes, etc. Amazing! I am sorry Greg is missing it, but I spotted a friend videoing it last night. Jenni has severe senioritis. Our Taiwanese students came to visit last night and stayed for an hour. Heng Hua looked startled when I told her Jenni has senioritis and laughed when we explained what it is. She said her room mate has it too! Well, I will stop and get back to packing. Thank you for your prayers.

Blessings- Nancy
