Surgery

I will be having outpatient surgery on January 14th in Tampa, Florida. I have a 90-95% chance of having a rare benign parathyroid tumor. I have struggled with health issues for years and this might be the cause. I am hoping that this is the answer. If not, then we will keep searching. The surgery is a delicate one that few doctors know how to do. Thankfully, we found a specialist in Florida. It is snowing in Kansas City with up to 6 more inches predicted today. An arctic front comes in tonight with wind chills of -20 to -30 by Friday. I might not want to come back after the surgery! I won't have a computer handy, so I'll give you an update when I return.
Thanks...Cat
