I'm back at MD Anderson to have a biopsy of the tumors in my lungs. My oncologist isn't totally convinced the tumors are cancer. Wow…how great would that be! To find out for sure, I will have a bronchoscopy. Being curious about how a bronchoscopy is performed, I found a video online. Oh my goodness!!! They will run a tube up my nose, down my throat, and into my lungs. Sounds fun right?? Check back later this week and I will share the full details of the experience.
Before I have the roto rooter experience, I have to have a CT scan. I have had one of those. For that test, I have to drink a bunch of chalky stuff. Gag!
Actually, I feel pretty blessed. Modern medicine practiced by a bunch of smart people who have dedicated their life's work to helping others motivates me to suck it up and do my part as a patient.
