Hello. Cub reporter Michele’s Husband coming to you live from the hospital. The surgery is done. The tumor was fairly easy for them to remove and the procedure went well. Quickly too! The doctor was able to remove the tumor thoracoscopically (I’m fairly certain all those letters are a real word) through 4 or 5 small “ports”. I should probably know how many, but I’m not counting them now. Anyway, the port on her lower chest is a little bit larger to accommodate removing the stupid little tumor. The initial pathology is non-conclusive so we have to wait for more results to see what the next step is. If there even is a next step. We will know something about the pathology by Monday and should have a detailed evaluation in about a week. It will be a long week. Michele is in the ICU right now and doing well. She’s sitting up, groggily, and is connected to various wires and tubes. Once the chest tube (the big painful one) is able to come out, she can come home. Hopefully that will be Saturday. Thanks to everyone for all your thoughts and prayers. We’ll keep you posted. One last note. I just got a mumbled request to inform you that her chest hurts and it’s worse when she coughs.
So I’m NOT the only one who thinks I’m funny?
