Today I recieved confirmation for the next procedure. It will take place on Wednesday morning of the 26th and is called a Bronchoscopy.
It’s a small procedure. They won’t put me out totally but will make me drowsy and knockout any feeling in my throat.
Then they will put a tube through my vocal cords until the the middle of my lungs. They can see where they are going with an ‘echo head’. With that they can find the exact spot to take the biopsy. This is done by a quick automated shot-like poke of the needle. This procedure won’t have any side effects and after the drowsiness wears off I will be up and running again.
In a week or so I will have the results of this biopsy. If it is clear then I am clear and will go into a watchful waiting process. If it is inconclusive they will do and biopsy through an operation (including 2 nights in the hospital). If they find more cancer they will recommend more chemo.
The last two options are the ones I don’t want of course. I’ll take it as it comes. I will check with Dr Einhorn if one of these occurs.
I dont’ have a date set for the result.
In the mean time Lori will be leaving for the States to get some air plus some mommy and friends time. After this intense summer this is the least she deserves.
I will be busy with lots of things. Like helping out getting QR-codes off the ground. QR-codes are a way of tagging or linking objects. It is a bar code type image like the one here on the left. If you scan it with yr phone camera and reader software it will redirect you to this website. These QRcodes can be put on buidlings or other objects to provide more information via a web link. This is just one applcation. It is the runner up to the Internet of Things and ubiqtious computing.
Also there is the VRM event I am organizing with others this Thursday. It will be my return on stage.
