Time to clean up the lungs

Jan 18th 2010: Scan today showed a lung tumor ‘the size of an apricot pit’. Getting it cut out in mid-February. Have no fear, we’re on it…

UPDATE Feb 20th 2010: I’m sitting in the hospital bed with only two tubes left stuck in me, feeling fit as a fiddle. Dr. Levine sliced through my ribcage on my back and pulled out every bit of the tumor. And I received comments from two different docs about my fantastic muscle cage around my lungs. Larry took the pic, and Gary measured the scar – 8.5″, the ladies are impressed! Click through if you feel brave enough to see it. ;-)

  1. Hey Mike! Just wanted you to know that you are in our thoughts and most definitely our prayers.
    We missed your Christmas card this year! The girls are getting sooo big, I can’t believe Wrenny is already eleven! It is amazing how time flies.

  2. Thanks Terry, I know it. The kids are all getting so big, they’ll be moving out before we know it!

    With Facebook all the rage, we didn’t really send out a Christmas letter this year… I think Andrea sent a belated ‘Epiphany’ letter to a few disconnected folks. ;-)
