I am so lucky to have the friends and family that I do. I cannot begin to tell you the phone calls, txt messages, emails, cards that I have received in the past couple of days. Heidi has not even had a chance to talk to me, haha. Yesterday was a very bad day for me. I was very down.......finally let my emotions get the best of me. Cried most of the day. I was due for that, I guess. Having more pain in my epi-gastric area that radiates into my upper back. More trouble swallowing as well. Sounds like soup today. I actually hate soup even since I had a surgery in 1998 and had to eat soup for 3 weeks. haha
I sent an email to Dan Ellenberger at University Hospitals. Danny use to be an Aurora Firefighter and I explained my condition. Danny the same day sent me a response from the President of the hospital naming the best esophageal cancer surgeon and team at UH. I will be calling them today and try to schedule a consult. UH is the northeast Ohio leader in cancer care at their Ireland Cancer Center. I appreciate Danny's help.
I am learning that some of my friends still don't know, so feel free to tell anyone that you think may want to know. I do not have any secretts.
I love all of you and I mean that!
