Some good news for a change: Bil's tumor

The plan is to make sure it can be removed entirely, along with the lobe, and not have any cancerous cells migrate outside the lung during the procedure.  They say 80% chance of complete recovery.

This is really good news to hear. When my tumor & lobe were removed an incision several inches long was required. Some lung removals can be done lathrocopically (sp) but mine could not...I think because of the tumor's size which was 1 inch. Anywho, my recovery absolutely sucked. Major pain I ranked it an 8/10. I hope he does well :) send him my prayers  & vibes.
