    The surgeon warned me I'd hate him after the shots. I told him he was wrong--I hated him after the first shot! I almost broke the steel arms of the chair I was sitting in. The surgery was a breeze, just a lot of bandages and a bit of soreness.

    Sure don't like to see members afflicted with cancer. Prayers offered to cure it before it further spreads.

    Best thoughts for a positive outcome.

    I say this as one who had skin cancer surg a month ago, and as I look in the mirror, I can still see quite a nice divot (which I feel good about, if that makes sense, because it was caught and banished from my person.)

    In the morning I'm contacting MD Anderson (Houston) and Stanford Cancer Center (Palo Alto) to see how quickly I can get in. Fingers crossed!
