You are probably thinking that I have gone off the deep end with this research. Prior to my diagnosis I thought that the information was interesting, but... Now, I feel as if the data will increase my lifeline by an inch or two with each bit of knowledge (that I follow). If just one person, besides myself, benefits from these posts, it will have been worth it.
After reading other blogs, I find that my whining about "waiting" is petty. I still don't like it, and am anxious to get tests, results, treatment, etc. But, this topic goes onto my list "Patience, a work in progress."
Just received a call from my Urologist, my appointment tomorrow has been upped to noon. Pray for the best results possible. Remember, this is for the mass outside the kidney. I am really hoping that there was room in the hospital schedule for me to do the biopsy on my kidney Tuesday, 10/19. Can't remember if I explained the reason for another biopsy... oh yeah I did, because it may be a different type cancer.
Instead of looking at the three hour round trip as difficult, I am going to look at it as a blessing. I "get" to make that trip... I am healthy enough to make the trip, have a working car, money for gas, eyes to see the scenery, a cell phone (Thanks Tina) to call for help if needed, etc.
It is the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can do only a little. Do what you can.
