Update on Jimmy

All went well today with Jimmy's Bronchoscopy.  It didn't take long to do the procedure, but we were there and he was in the care of the hospital from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.  They took biopsies from both lungs and we will get the results at the follow up appointment.  The good news is that no cancer was seen with the naked eye.  There was mucous in the bottom of the left lung that was sucked out and sent off for culture along with a brush biopsy of a nodule in the right lung which they have been watching for a couple of years.  The right lung nodule has been previously biopsied with negative results for cancer.  Today they were primarily concerned on what's going on with the left lung.

Jimmy is alert and you would never know that he underwent any kind of procedure today.  He wants to mow the lawn, but I have had to put my foot down!  It's 81 degrees right now and the cats don't even want to be out.

We are anxiously waiting for 5:00 p.m. so that Jimmy can eat a good solid meal.  It's 4:27 and we are counting down the minutes.  We are also counting down the minutes when we will see Brandon.  He has been on his senior trip since last Friday and promised to stop by to see us this afternoon.
