It's actually good now Paul. but a year ago suuuuucked
hard to believe what a change for the better it made.
The fistula, which connected a vein to an artery, was put in to support recurring blood cholesterol filtering.
But when I went on new meds it wasn't needed anymore.
The problem was it was scavenging to much fresh oxygenated blood and dumping into used return blood.
it gets complicated when you look at what actually triggers you to breathe, i.e. O2 levvels.
but anyways once that was gone, i.e. removed, it was an immediate change.
think of it as replacing the bad pressure regulator in the fuel system. the engine is running a lot better.

A few Sandhill Cranes that were equity investors celebrating the end of 2018. May the market do better in 2019.

The doctor sent the results ahead of the office visit and two out of the three biopsies were malignant.

We will find out at the office visit what the next step is.

So sorry to hear this. Hope treatment doesn't have to be too involved/long term. Our best to you both.

We spend all day in three different hospital today. First a doctors consult then an MRI. Couldn’t get it in the first hospital so we were sent to the second hospital....the second hospitals MRI broke down so now we are at the third hospital.

She needs tons of tests and consults before they start chemo. The doctor told Patty that 2019 wasn’t going to be a great year for her. We already cancelled our plan FL vacation for this month. Our fall Europe river cruise will be cancelled next per doctors suggestion.

Life can be a bitch at times!

Effing cancer! I was hoping those were easily removed lumps and Patty would be on her way. I'm so sorry for this to be happening, David.
