Crossed fingers for cool weather for your trip! One more set of eyes can't hurt. Getting mentally ready for battle is the best way to face this monster. Hopefully they can get things moving pretty fast for you because waiting is the worest.

Hey Mike!  Glad to hear you're in the process of working the plan.  My mom lived in Claremont and I know how balmy it can get - so, the cooler weather is  a piece of good luck to celebrate.  Best wishes for a god visit and for a successful surgery.  Keep us posted as time allows.

Regards,

Stan

Big Mike my warrior brother!

I have no doubt you will handle this surgery in stride just like you have handled the kitchen sink they have thrown at you so far. You inspire me man, always ready for battle, always upbeat about the fight, a warrior in every sense. Rock on Big Mike!

Thank you guys!! All this will be behind us in a months time, then we can get back on the Opdivo Band Wagon! I dont want the other little Melanoma Baby Monsters growing big and strong, as iv stated, my Ct report shows Opdivo (with Yervoys help of course) was keeping all other tumors from growing & the one in Left Lobe (the 2nd biggest i have) it shrunk that bastard! :) WARRIOR STRONG!

You've done your homework!  See what your thoracic surgeon has to say.  Ask ANY question you may have!!!  Take a breath.  And then ~ you can handle anything you decide is best for you.  You got this!!  celeste
