Port-o-cath surgery in the morning

I cannot remember having medical scheduling run more smoothly. I was able to get in touch with Dr. Walkes, the surgeon who did my port-o-cath surgery last year. He remembered my case and opened up a slot to do the replacement surgery tomorrow morning. His assistant was able to get the insurance and hospital surgical reservation all set up. He will perform the 10a.m. surgery at Houston Methodist hospital, which is near MD Anderson. It should be a day surgery this time. This is all good because it will have time to heal before chemo administration on Monday.

Greg--keeping you in my prayers through this. Have been down the same road, albeit in Northern Michigan.

It's no surprise things are flowing smoothly when you remember Who's running your show. You must have been praying for the Red Sox too.

Greg and Christine, our thoughts and prayers are with you. Sounds like one of the frequently uttered sayings around our house -- "oops, missed a spot." Keep looking up.
