Late yesterday afternoon they called and set up the timing of the surgery on Thursday. The surgery itself is planned at 1 pm on Thursday. We are to be at the hospital at 10 am for check in procedures and to pull her blood as they want to do that the day of surgery. The doctor has a surgical procedure that morning in another hospital far from here and then will do hers in the afternoon.
If, and that is a huge if, everything goes absolutely perfectly, she will spend Thursday night in the hospital and come home sometime Friday. If not, she will be in longer. Unfortunately, both the surgeon and the cancer doctor will be out of town for the holidays.
This means that she won't see her cancer doctor until January 4 at 3 pm. That appointment was scheduled even later yesterday and was the earliest they could get her in. That also means that if the thing is the very much expected Lymphoma they would not start chemotherapy until the following week.
