He seems fine and is even lying on the side of the incision. Wish he'd poop, though. Glad he likes pumpkin.

Trip to the hand doctor went as well as could be expected. No injection, because, well, at this point that is just managing the symptoms and it's time to look past that to (shudder) surgery.

I also need to check with my health insurance to see how much it will cost me, out of pocket. So, lots of things to think about, but at this point, my options are limited. The thought of surgery makes me want to whine, but I've got to figure out how to make it happen. Because it's gotta happen. Big thanks to my good friend for spending her birthday with me. We had yummy Indian food after my appointment and then did a little retail therapy at Whole Foods and Trader Joe's. Now I need to walk the dog!

Interesting news for you. That's a long time for recovery!

Zach was out of surgery a few hours ago. Doc called and I could hear Zach crying (he's very loud) in the background as he came out of anesthesia. The obvious part of the cancer was about the size of the last joint of my little finger. He has an 8" incision. They sent the tissue off to be graded. If it's anything other than low-grade, we can opt to have further test done on it to determine which therapy drugs would be the best bet. Luckily that's a $400 decision I can put off for a few days. When hobbitt gets off work we'll go pick him up. He'll be all hopped up on goofballs!

Thanks for all your good thoughts an prayers!

Tomorrow I've got a follow up appointment with the hand doctor to talk about the possibility of thumb joint replacement surgery and to perhaps get another steroid shot into that joint (which I almost passed out from last year, and when I didn't pass out, I almost puked). Neither prospect thrills me, but I think that at this point surgery is inevitable. That joint is never going to regenerate cartilage or re-position itself correctly. So, good thoughts appreciated.

And while you're at it, please send some good vibes in the direction of BHD's sweet pupper, Zach tomorrow. She posted about it in another thread.

ER yesterday for pancreatitis (3rd go-round with that so he knows it well these days). Moved to a room for observation; BP dropped overnight to something quite alarming so they moved him to ICU. They struggled to get BP "up" to 80/50 where they deemed him stable enough to transport to a regional hospital in Billings. There, they recalibrated his pacemaker and did other things to get BP stable and normal. With better circulation, other functions are looking like they'll come back too, so it is starting to look a lot more hopeful than it did 12 hours ago. 36 hours ago he rode his bike (indoors on a trainer, simulates hills etc.) 8 miles. JFW's in Billings tonight; we'll trade places tomorrow and then my sister will take the Friday shift and we'll play it by ear from there. Thanks for the concern and good thoughts.
