More Doors at M.D. Anderson

Friday, January 8, 2010, is the scheduled date of my cytoreduction and HIPEC procedure at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. An update--M.D. Anderson "re-diagnosed" my pathology slides, and now say that I have mucinous adenocarcinoma, albeit "low grade." The difference between this new diagnosis and my first one is that my "new" version is more likely to metastasize. So that was kind of a downer. The treatment is basically the same, however.

But I feel good about my decision to go with M.D. Anderson. The picture above is the door to the operating room (click on it to see it better). I found it a little spooky when I first saw it, like an antlion trap, and I felt like something was going to spring out and grab me and drag me in. But now, while I can't say I am excited about going through those doors, I am, again, getting tired of waiting. I'll probably regret saying that...but enough denial already, it's time to get moving....
