My surgery will be on Sunday, March 28 (the day my father passed away). I'll never forget the date, because it was the day before my son's 12th bday and it was the saddest bday dinner I have ever attended. This surgery will be good because they will remove the tumor and I will feel a lot more comfortable. I've been having a lot of lower back pain from it pressing against my pelvis for awhile now. I am still in room F-321-B if anyone wants to send a card. I'll be here at least a week.
