Setting up surgery

After some disappointing lack of communication from the GI doctor's office, I was able to pick up Keith's records from there and hand carry them to the surgeon's office yesterday.

The good (no, make that great!) news is that the biopsy came back just fine. The somewhat bad news is that the portion of the colon that needs surgery requires a urologist (kidney doctor) in the OR because of the high possibility of damaging a ureter. So now the pressure is on the surgery scheduler to coordinate the two physicians and get us all on the surgery schedule.

Yuck - scheduling two specialists is never fun. I tried to schedule a dermatologist the other day and they gave me a date in MARCH! Ugh. I found another one, but still. I know it will all work out, but I'll pray anyway :)

Oh my, you know we've been there, and in the end I hope you'll look back and see the beauty of God's grace.... I know we did. What's the main issue? I've been outa the loop. You'll have to keep us updated. Take care and God bless.

Yikes! That's got to be annoying. Well, I hope that they can schedule everything well and efficiently. I will keep Keith in my thoughts.
