    Another update.

    She went in for a laryngoscopy & full body scan the other day and good news, it hasn't spread.

    She will be going to see two more specialists just to make 1 billion percent sure it's confined to her neck.

    When they give her the green light on that, she will be getting the tumor removed & then begin radiation.

    Due to the glitch I've had an issue getting in this forum. Finally working better.

    Just wanted to wish you and your family the best, Al.

    Great news. Stay strong

    yes. I learned from my father's bought with a rare neck cancer that you cannot allow yourself to dwell on the dark. Strangely sometimes cancer patients and their families find this time and after their recovery to be a time where they reset their priorities, come together as a family.

    Glad to hear some positive news for you and your mom Al.

    Hopefully things continue to move in a positive direction!
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    UPDATE (Robert Stack voice)

    Mama Van Bundy goes in for surgery on Tuesday, February 26th. They want her there by 545AM, so I'll be spending the night on the couch at her place & I will drive her into Boston before the usual traffic insane asylum begins & I can still get to work before doors open. It is a very delicate procedure, as she informed be she'll be on the table for 5 hours. After that, she'll be in recovery for 2 or 3 days & then she can come home. After that, I'm not sure. I'm assuming while she's in the hospital, her doc will come by and give her the rundown on the radiation schedule and inform her whether or not chemo is needed.

    Thanks for the update. No matter what happens, as long as your Mom gets to go home... spend every minute with her that you can in the most positive way as possible. I'm hoping and praying for the best!
    Just go for it!

    Hang in there brother.

    Sorry I haven't updated sooner, I haven't slept much lately & I'm finally doing nothing right now.

    She had as good of a surgery as one could have hoped for. No complications or anything. She stayed in the hospital for 2 nights afterward & I brought her home yesterday afternoon. She's just happy being back in the comfort of her own home & I don't blame her in the least. Her room in the hospital was smaller than the trunk of my Cadillac & a good fart in there would've given you a concussion.

    Now, going forward. Her follow up is next week where they will remove the stitches from the incision. Then she has to basically stay dormant for a month & keep the scar clean. Radiation is starting sometime in mid-April because they have to wait until the incision is 10000% healed. The good news on my end with this? She's having it done at the sister facility in Stoneham. Now I don't have to have a stroke driving in Boston every day for god knows how long.

    Cliff notes version: She's fine, in good spirits & looking forward to kicking this thing right in the balls.
