Countdown to New York

  • Biopsy slides - Check
  • Pet Scans and MRI images - Check
  • Insurance Cards and Photo IDs - Check


Lee & I leave for New York this Sunday for our appointment with Dr. Fong at Sloan Kettering.

What do I hope to get from this meeting?

Well, the ultimate goal is to have surgery on my liver to get rid of all visible signs of cancer. That - is the best hope for a cure. So, I want Dr. Fong to offer me surgery - surgery with confidence.

I want to understand what my options are and which one is the best to pursue. I want a plan of attack. I want to know what the next step is for me to fight for. I want to know where to put my energy and my focus. I want longevity. I want life. I want to be humble enough to accept God's will.
