Hi Everyone, Well, I am now officially "tonsil-less". It actually wasn't a bad surgery, just a very sore throat, but no complications. I will find out in a few days, from the biopsy, if I am cancer free....so stay tuned in.
I had been a harpist and music teacher living on the island of Kauai for 7 years, and then my lung collapsed as of May 2, 2007. I had to be wisked off the island, taken away in oxygen and sent to Stanford Medical in Palo Alto, Calif. After 3 gruelling weeks of draining my lung, a chest tube inserted, and biopsys, ct scans, etc. they came up with cancer in the lining of my lung and the lining of my abdomen. treatment will begin as soon as they know what and where it came from.
