      I'm in Anchorage for my 2nd infusion, my hair did not come with me though... it stayed home in the garbage and every possible place you can shed hair into.. bummer, but it could be worse, right?

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): I had a successful wedge resection with clean margins. When they operate on the right upper lung there's a possibility of messing with your natural pacemaker... which led to the staff waking me 3 times during the night as they monitored my heart beat. They expected it so they were fully prepared and I wasn't scared at all. Then after having a colonoscopy Monday, a lung biopsy on Wednesday, then a last minute cancellation in the OR put me in surgery on Friday, I once again experienced "ilias?" "illis"? when your digestive system stops moving... urp! I threw up so much I couldn't eat or drink right for a week after released from the hospital. Now I'm obsessed with never becoming like that again! Pain meds=docusate
