Change of plan:
The surgery that was going to be at Wash U on friday is now going to be sometime later out in Baltimore. I was going to get a very careful and select removal of bad lymph nodes, now I'll have a more aggressive surgery where they'll remove all the lymph nodes they can find.
It used to be the case that the surgery I'll be having involved cutting a muscle or two in the neck (SCM) but the guy who will be doing it is supposed to be very good and hopefully won't have to do so.
The last 24 hours have been crazy and stressful. This whole change of plan came up very quickly. Generally it throws us off schedule for the summer and may result in the need to miss some school. Hopefully I won't miss too much and I'll still be able to start on time.
Oh well, es la vida.
