Third time's a charm?

I got the call from the surgeon this morning at about 10:00, wanting to know if I'm free for surgery at 6:30 am on Wednesday. Looks like I'm definately getting my CSS this time.

I'll be heading down to OHSU tomorrow to get my Picc line and to start the whole testing process ... AGAIN :)

I'm ready, I'm HIGH like freaker/tweaker High earlier. So, here's to me getting those HIGH NUMBERS I need!!!!!

ok, I'm not sure what that means, but Dr. L was pretty exceited about it.

My CSS went really well, and I'm going to guess that we got the numbers that I needed. Teusday was sure stressful enough that I'm sure I generated enough cortisol to get kicked off half a dozen sports teams!

Dr. L called while I was driving back from Portland yesterday evening, and he said he's got enough to take my case to the Tumor board. He said that I will probably be surprised at how fast the next few weeks will move, and that I shouldn't have any difficulty getting aproval.

I crashed sometime around 1:30 am last night, and I while I've only been up for a few hours, I'm heading back that way for a nap.

Monday I will have a full MRI and MRV. The neuro thinks that one of those will show why the headaches and the intercrainial noise, but Dr. L is convinced that my headaches are caused by the Cushing's and will be resolved once the tumor is gone.

I can only hope!

Anyway, I'm trying to figure out where I'm going to move my journal to. I'll change my sig once I have a new home for it.

I really do appricate everyone's well wishes and positive thoughts. They mean so much to me, and I gain strength and courage from them. Thank you all.

Thanks Mandy, I decided to move everything to Blogger, part of Google. http://vinesqueen.blogspot.com/

So, in two weeks I will know more. I wish I had more news. I wish I didn't have to wait two more weeks. It seems that is how I have to do things, wait two weeks, then two more weeks. Then two more weeks. My DH tells me that it won't be much longer. That I have to have faith, because he has faith.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
