Things started to fall into place yesterday. I wasn't real thrilled about having to drive into DC to talk to the surgeon yesterday. I'm kinda glad I did now. We have a better idea of that part of the process now. He told me that he feels the tumor is now operable. He is confident that it can be removed safely. He said that he will be removing the whole right side and part of the left side of Cody's liver. Cody will be left with 20% of his liver but that is OK. The liver regenerates so in a matter of weeks it should be back to full size. The doctor said that it has already started to grow larger because of the dead tumor cells. The liver seems to know when it needs to repair itself.
I also heard from Corporate Angel yesterday. They informed me that we have seats on a AOL-Time Warner jet on Tuesday morning. We will be going to a small hanger that is adjacent to Dulles Airport. No security lines or waiting in the terminal. How sweet is that? :D
Cody is really looking good. His appetite is still not the best but it gets better and better everyday. I'll try to get some pictures this evening and post them. I will be taking plenty of pictures next week also. A good friend at Georgetown has lined up tickets to see Lion King on Broadway for Thursday night. I've never been so this will be a good time for all of us. I guess they have things available at the Ronald McDonald House also. They try to make your stay as comfortable as possible. I think we will be staying close to the room on Friday because Cody has 3 or 4 procedures on Friday. One of the is them is the bone marrow test. They will extracting from 4 spots which probably make him very sore for a couple of days.
On the way home yesterday I ran over something on the road. Well, it's a good thing I was close to home because when I went out this morning to go to work my left front tire was flat. I put the spare on in the garage which was good. It's raining and very icy out this morning. I looked at the tire I took off and there is a big piece of metal sticking out of the tread.
