Mama has lung cancer, we just found out yesterday.

The CT scan showed a mass in her lower left lung, it measured 2.7mm x 1.7mm x 1.7mm. It doesn't appear like it has spread to the lymph nodes, hopefully.

She is scheduled for a PET scan tomorrow and we go back Monday for the final diagnosis and treatment options.

Any prayers for her would be welcomed and appreciated.

Oh dear God! Of course I will be praying for "mama". A name would help me focus my prayers.

Take good care of Moma, but don't forget to take care of yourself as well. You will be vital in her journey back to health. You won't do her any good if you get sick too!

Dr. Clyde...I like that name...you done good hc.

We live on the outskirts of Tuscaloosa in the more rural area...about 25 minutes away.

She is 73 and otherwise she is in great health. Only takes meds for acid reflux. She did smoke for many years but not in the last 18.

She came down with bronchitis and pneumonia in January and was really sick (very unusual for her). She recovered from everything except the cough...it lingered on and on.

About 2 weeks ago she went for an x-ray and it kinda went from there...one test led to another.

MM, my mom got lung cancer at age 69 and beat it, so just stay as positive as you can. It's good news that it isn't in the lymph nodes - maybe they caught this early which is very good towards beating cancer. You and Suzy have my prayers.

Prayers MM for you and Suzy.

--------------------
Wife's Mad. Told me we never talk anymore. And just last nite while watching super bowl told her 2 or 3 times to get me a coke and popcorn. Also told her not to forget to take out trash in the morning. Ain't that something. Also told me I was too indecisive. Can't figure out what to do about that. One nice thing I guess. She called me a pro crastinator. Don't know what a crastinator is but I guess I'm a good one for her to call me a pro. Gonna wait til tomorrow to look that up though. I love her but somrtimes can't help but thinking I should have told uncle Junior to keep his coon hound pup and stevens double barrel and also his youngest daughter.

You got that right, Ed. [Smile]

Suzy truly is the love of my life. I'm sure everyone on here feels the way about their wife...I don't know where my sorry ass would be today if not for her.

BTW, I told her about all the nice things you guys were saying. She said: "I thought those guys didn't like you"? I replied: "They're not praying for me"! We both had a big laugh. She really does appreciate it guys...as do I.

My thoughts and prayers are with your wife and you as well, MM.

And ,Clyde, you've got my wife and me by over a year. We were married in September, 1966. I'm sure Norm has us all beat by a lot.

Heck, I would be happy to buy you a bourbon should we meet.

A real conservative would own the establishment and give him the first drink free in hopes he'd bring all his friends to buy drinks! Capitalism at work!

Clydeh, I was a sales Rep for a number of companies that supplied General Electric in Louisville. My partner handled Cullman products and we sold a ton of aluminum parts to GE through the years. Cullman was a great company and wondered if they are still the company they were 20 years ago.

Cat, I had several patients who worked for Cullman Products years ago and it was a good employer here. I think another company bought them and I'm not sure their name.
