    Hi, 3 weeks ago I was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in my kidneys which has spread to my leg and lungs. because it is my lungs they are not sure whether they can do safe surgery. I've been in the hospital for this whole time and they still have no idea what the next step will be

      The surgery is now set for Tuesday afternoon due to schedule conflict for the 2 different surgeons. I am ready and gonna work hard to recover afterwards. Thank You all for your words of encouragement

      Good luck Tom, and you have my prayers. I can imagine that rescheduling a surgery is nerve wracking

      It is Meyati, but on the positive it gave time for my family to get to Tucson Az from Cape Cod, so we could spend more time together before the surgery. Being alittle macabre to it helped me get my affairs in order ion case something happens
