[MOL] Donna


My brother-in-law's first Dr. said that they could not operate on his tumor.
He was reluctant to seek a second opinion but finally agreed to one.
This second opinion Dr is now treating him.  His plan is to shrink the tumor with chemo,
then operate.

I found him at a Comprehensive Cancer Clinic. I  found a listing of doctors on their web-site
I was searching for a thoracic surgeon that specialized in thoracic oncology.  I e-mailed a
Dr that was listed in that department and asked him to make a recommendation of thoracic
surgeons and he gave me 2 names of "experts" at their clinic.  Sometimes you may have
to go for a third or fourth to find a Dr that you feel comfortable with.

I hope your appointment goes well.  Take care and please let me know what happens.

I was never grungy myself.  Always shaved those armpits.  I come from a
Catholic family.  I would have never gotten away with that.  My father did not
even approve of wearing jeans on Sunday.  

Yes, I loved those Dead concerts.  It always made me feel like we are all in
this thing together. I like alternative music as well.  Again, I also like
oldies but goodies, country, big band, blues, you name it.  

I too have had the urge to pick and just head to a concert.  I wish life were
that easy.  I always think of what Winston Churchill said, "If you are not a
liberal when you are young, you do not have a heart.  And if you are not a
conservative once you are older, you do not have a brain."    That statement
is soooooo true.  

I am heading off to another appointment with a 2nd thoracic surgeon this
morning.  Maybe he will have something else to say.  Right now they are saying
they cannot operate on my tumor because it is too close to my trachea.  I told
a friend over the weekend, I feel like a piece of real estate.  Location,
location, location. LOL!!!
