DR. COOKE is doing my surgery first thing Monday morning, 10/14. I check in at 5:30 am to UC Davis Medical Center and surgery should start at 7:30; it will last 3-3.5 hours including prep and “clean-up” (I wonder if they sing a kindergarten-inspired clean up song to keep them focused?!?!)
THE fancy shmancy surgery title is: Flexible Bronchoscopy, Right, Thoracotomy, Lobectomy, Wedge.
THE real world surgery title is: stick some tubes and cameras and scissors into my right lung area, cut out my tumors and the lower lobe of my right lung.
(Humans have 5 lung lobes & since I have healthy lungs I “shouldn’t even notice” that one lobe is gone!)
YOWZA. Am spending this weekend at home with my sweetie, our cats, and a few friends to keep us good company.
