My wife is having a CT Scan and biopsy tomorrow to determine the makeup of a mass at the top of her right lung. Please keep her in your thoughts. We're worried.

You have my good thoughts, and my encouragement to stay by her side, show her your love, and be there for her...which will do her much more good than my thoughts!

Hang in there.

Saw our doctor today. Not good news. Her CT Scan shows she has nodules in both lungs and something suspicious on her adrenal gland. So she's on the list for a PET scan in Calgary and a referral to a thoracic surgeon. She said today she's in the fight of her life and won't go down without a fight kicking and screaming. She's a strong woman and I believe every word of that. Just hoping the doctors can save her.

How quickly are they getting the PET scan and the appt. with the thoracic surgeon? Where I am, it can take a while to get to see a specialist.
