Cedwyn's quilt at her memorial celebration this past Saturday, in Portland, OR
Gordon20024 has a cancerous mass on his neck. It will be removed this Thursday -- so let us keep him in our thoughts. This is from a comment he made in the Monday Night Cancer Club diary last night:
Thursday will be my day for removal of 'neck mass, limited neck dissection and removal of overlying skin'.Put your good thoughts for him on his quilt! Just leave a message of love and support in the messages and I will transcribe it in archival ink onto muslin -- and my sister and I will sew it in.
Seven weeks ago I noticed a small lump on the side of my throat about the size of a 00 buckshot pellet or 3/16" diameter. I'm not one to waste a lot of time sitting in an ER but was curious. Was it safe, normal or something to be addressed. The more the ER Dr probed it the more angry it became. Biopsies have tested positive for malignancy.
PET and CT scans have been conducted so the medics should have a good road map to work from.
I really appreciate the outpouring of support and well wishes from the DKos community. I means a lot to have so many wonderful friends from the far reaches of the compass who send healing energies and thoughts.
Bless you all.
We are short 9 messages and $67 for this quilt. I will keep these numbers updated.
