    Stitches Are Out and Tests Are OK

    Well,  two stories were typed, but I think the bottom line is I didn’t actually post them correctly, so let’s  see if I can’t duplicate the info that I tried to put out there before. Last Wednesday, the stitches were taken out.  It’s amazing, a person can’t really tell that the same old scar was again opened up, the same tumor, (a little less in size), was again taken out, and the scar was closed up again.  The medical team was so unbelievable, in regards to so many things that they did, from the operation, to the after care, to following up on my rehab/walking, again, I just have words…

By the end of the night, all right, let’s go home and call it a night. So many times I go to a poker game, play poker, and head on end to another day. Every day, now, it seems to take on a new perspective. Probably every little thing will. By the way, that’s not a bad thing; I do believe that little thing…

    A Lot of Stuff That Eventually Wants to Come Out

    There’s a lot of stuff that eventually wants to come out. So O.K., in time it will. But there’s still a whole lot that still is forming it’s way to the top. So here I was, ready to start the blog on the last surgery, (April 29, 2008), and then we find out that, “Hey, we have to go back in there, grab ANOTHER tumor, and we’ll pull that one out,too!” Then there was more news, stuff that we should all know about, but it just came out like blah, blah, blah…. So the Dr., Dr. Isaac Yang of the UCLA Medical Bldg, very astutly asked, “So when do you…
