Sorry for the Delay

So much seems to have happened, but when I try to sum it all up with the one thing we are looking for, I can't.

Donna's friends Rhea and MJ stopped by to see her this weekend. It was a nice break and really lifted her spirits. So far as company is concerned, right now- the more the merrier. If that changes, I will let you know. Until then,please feel free to come by and say hello.

The incision the runs from ear to ear like a headband is healing nicely. If she let's me I'll post a picture (proof that she looks better than some of the updates let on). Occupational therapy and speech therapy are still working with Donna to get her up and running.

This weekend they did another round of CTs and plain film x-rays. They have identified something in her chest, but again, they do not know what they are looking at. The new internist/hospitalist thinks we may be looking at lymphoma. With the number of specialist who have ruled out cancer, I'm not sure how to take the latest news.

Since I have another midterm tomorrow and cannot miss class, I have requested a call from the doctor. The nurses let me know he would call tomorrow while he is making rounds. I have a number of questions for him. The biggest question, if he thinks it is lymphoma, what has he seen that no one else did. Next question, what are we going to do moving forward...
