OoohhWee, my neck hurts, my back hurts, my arm looks bad at from the IV site.
My neck hurts probably from the way I had to hold my head during the procedure; it kind or reminds me of how your neck bothers you at the beginning of any football season regardless of what level you are playing on. For the first two weeks of contact your neck along with other body parts are going to be sore.
The biopsy site is a little sore, my neck and arm bother me more.
The IV was only in my arm for 5 hours, it was sugar water and only ran for about an hour during the biopsy.

I hope to get some sort of feedback in a week, I am not too sore right now, but I think my back will be hurting more in the morn. Judging by where the needle was inserted to do a wedge resection they are going to have to break some ribs in the middle of my rib cage; entering from the back.

I am still undecided about school, I am in the program and with a cohort, the engineer department is aware of this latest hurdle, so I just have to make a decision.

The news really didn't surprise me, I wish I could have heard it three or four years down the line but its all good I will just have to increase my exercise regiment over the next 3 weeks I am thinking about (75 minutes on the treadmill, 100 push ups, and 100 reps with my ab will each day until....)
I am glad that my sidekick for the day wasn't really aware of the news I was receiving in the doctors office, I had here playing games, and drawing pictures on the computer.
Oh well heading to the hospital with my Raegan as a sidekick I am keeping her out of school today as she was sick all last night. I try to shelter the girls from as many of the medical hurdles I must stumble through as possible but today she will get to hang with me as we go to this routine oncology visit, pick up prescriptions, and pick up my oral device from my dentist office (to help with the sleep apnea due to the prednisone swelling the neck 20 inches and growing back to my football days eh???)

Blood work in the morn. I might even let them draw blood from the elbow bend in my left arm, it was used last month during my CT scan(s) without out any problems or multiple needle sticks. My oral device did not come in they (my dentists office is hoping it will be in by Monday).

The news was shocking then but the bad times passed everything was going great (job, family, school). We just had our second daughter, Ravyn was 3 weeks old and Raegan was proud of her little baby doll.
The Steelers were in the Superbowl then, and some of the guys from work came to watch it w/ me as I was still in the hospital, due to a collapsed lung suffered during the bronch to get some lung tissue for the pathologist to determine what was going on with my lungs; we soon found out.
