Talked to surgeon
Dr. Wigle was in and said everything went well. They did see some cancer on the pleura that was new since 3 months ago, but he said the burden of disease was not that great. They did not remove any cancer this time, since they know what it is (no need to biopsy) and they know they cannot get it all. He said it is a big possibility that we go home with a chest tube still in Derek to give the lung more time to stay adhered before pulling the tube out. We are glad for that option, because it means we might not have to be up here as long. The cancer saddens us. Thanks for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers.
