New Appointment .....:-(
I've received an email today asking me to go to meet with the surgeon tomorrow afternoon.
This will be for the results of my recent PET scan and to discuss the surgery.
Suddenly I can't breath.....
I thought I was gaining some control of all this and getting myself ready for what I have to do - but now I'm sitting here thinking how am I going to get through this.
Update tomorrow, nothing much else to say at the moment :-(
