Okay, maybe not...(plans change)
Upon inquiring about the type of anesthesia to be used Wednesday morning during Lorelei's biopsy, another surgeon looked at her CT scan. This surgeon felt the tumor is too dangerously close to her carotid artery to operate in the manner planned (interventional radiologically guided surgery.) So we're kind of back to square one on this. We're checking with a thoracic surgeon (Dr. Randolph over at Oklahoma Heart Hospital) to see the soonest he can do it. (He's operated on her five times already this year and she really trusts him. He knows his way around a carotid artery!) Nothing is scheduled yet. It may be Friday. We've certainly learned never to think plans are "set in stone" during a battle with cancer.
