I have some news that I’ve shared with family and some friends. Many of you know I’ve had a challenging year, losing my mom then my brother unexpectedly. I’ve also had several other family deaths. In May, when my brother died, I had a severe UTI that took many days to clear enough to further test. My great doctor further tested with a CT scan, referring me to specialists in Iowa City. After having a MRI and other tests, I learned I have a barely functioning kidney complicated by a mass on top. Is it cancer? We don’t know yet
So this week on Tuesday I’ll have a Covid test, followed by removal of my kidney and mass on Wednesday July 27th at 12:30 PM. It’s a four hour surgery, 1 night in the hospital and no lifting for a month. My sister and I have been working hard to finish both estates prior to my surgery. I doubt if that will happen but at least most of the lifting and hard work will be done. Please keep me in your thoughts as I go through another challenge. Thank you and much love❤
